A search for a sorcerer’s mirror may shatter a man’s mind in this colonial-era thriller by the New York Times-bestselling author of Cardinal Black.
In the year 1704, Matthew Corbett is about to go up against an antagonist completely different from any he has faced before. On a trip to Italy to track down Brazio Valeriani and information about the mirror created by his father, the sorcerer Ciro, Matthew and Hudson Greathouse find themselves marooned on a beautiful island known as Golgotha—a place that hides a multitude of secrets and puts both of them at terrible risk.
The islanders welcome them with a massive feast—but as the island pulls them deeper into its influence, the castaways struggle to maintain their grip on reality, even their very identity. Matthew must keep his wits about him and solve the mystery enshrouding the other side of the island, where an active volcano looms and an elusive creature lurks…
This new novel in the series by the five-time Bram Stoker Award winner is a compelling concoction of history, mystery, adventure, and terror that takes us deeper into the early eighteenth-century world of Matthew Corbett, his compatriots, and his mortal enemies.
“This popular series takes us to a long forgotten time with characters who never fail to entertain.” —The Florida Times-Union
“The Corbett novels are rich, atmospheric stories, the kind of historical mystery that makes the reader feel as though he really has stepped back in time.”—Booklist
When’s The Next One?
I am invested in this series! He developed backstories for some of the more deplorable characters and it brought an interesting layer to the narrative.
