The Crown and Key Society face their most terrifying villain yet: Gaios, a deranged demigod with the power to destroy Britain.
To avenge a centuries-old betrayal, Gaios is hell-bent on summoning the elemental forces of the earth to level London and bury Britain. The Crown and Key Society, a secret league consisting of a magician, an alchemist, and a monster-hunter, is the realm’s only hope—and to stop Gaios, they must gather their full strength and come together as a team, or the world will fall apart.
But Simon Archer, the Crown and Key’s leader and the last living magician-scribe, has lost his powers. As Gaios searches for the Stone of Scone, which will give him destructive dominion over the land, monster-hunter Malcolm MacFarlane, alchemist extraordinaire Kate Anstruther, gadget geek Penny Carter, and Charlotte the werewolf scramble to reconnect Simon to his magic before the world as they know it is left forever in ruins.
The Conquering Dark by Clay Griffith
It is finally coming to ahead. The insane and vengeful demigod wants the totally destruction of England and the only thing standing in his way is Simon and his band of supernatural friends.
Mystery, suspense, some romance, a group that has slowly developed bonds closer than a blood and magically induces mayhem make The Conquering Dark a fantastical fantasy read.
I love the world team Griffith has created. They have created the perfectly dark, magic infused, steampunk action adventure to immerse yourself in.
I received this ARC of The Conquering Dark from Random House Publishing Group - Del Rey Spectra in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication July 28, 2015.
