The Chemickal Marriage Summary


The Chemickal Marriage by G.W. Dahlquist

'If HBO are looking for a project to follow Game of Thrones, they need seek no further . . . an epic' Scotsman

The adventure continues in G.W. Dahlquist's The Chemickal Marriage, the follow up to the popular The Glass Book of Dream Eaters and The Dark Volume.

Miss Temple, young, wealthy and far away from home, never wanted to be a heroine. Yet her fiance is dead (admittedly, by her own hand), her companions slain and her nemesis, the terrifyingly wicked Contessa Lacquer-Sforza, escaped. It falls on her tiny shoulders to destroy a deadly cabal whose alchemy threatens to enslave the world. Miss Temple plots her revenge.

But Dr Svenson and Cardinal Chang are alive, barely - their bodies corrupted by the poisonous blue glass. Wounded and outnumbered, Miss Temple, Dr Svenson and Cardinal Chang pursue their enemies through city slums and glittering palaces as they fight to prevent the cabal's crushing dominion and unholy marriage between man and machine.

Dahlquist's rip-roaring adventure sees an assassin, an heiress and a surgeon battle against the world's most unholy evil, in their final quest.

'If HBO are looking for a project to follow Game of Thrones, they need seek no further . . . an epic which...will only grow in popularity over the years [thanks to] its virtues, hi-jinks, horror, decadence and derring-do' Stuart Kelly, Scotsman

'Fantastic. Somewhere between Dickens, Sherlock Holmes and Rider Haggard. I was in seventh heaven' Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth on The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters
