"A horrible tale of twisted betrayal and otherworldly transformations set in a lost Lovecraftian world" Elliot Worthington is an upper level guard at Loindon's Newgate Prison. It is the year of our Lord 1869 and his beautiful wife Annabelle is stricken with a mysterious illness that no doctor can seem to handle. They share their undying love for each other with their 9 month old Son Jacob. One day, when leaving yet another failed physicians office, they are met by a shadowy, diminutive figure named Azim, who makes Elliot an indecent proposal which he has no choice but to accept. Not knowing that it will turn their lives into a living nightmare where sanity is forsaken and the deepest depths of fear and terror are all that remains. The heavy metal band CAGE recorded an entire concept album based upon this novel.
