Black Seas of Infinity: The R’lyeh Cycle Book Two




They called it the Event.

The Event changed everything. The earthquakes came first, including the Big One, shattering the Pacific Rim and plunging the world into chaos. Then the seas came, the skies opened, and the never-ending rain began. But as bad as that was, there is something worse.

The Rising has begun.

Providence is flooded. An agoraphobic artist watches from his window as the sea takes the streets. But the ocean has brought more than storms, as the presence of something alien prods and grasps his mind. Can he find the courage to flee, or will his mind and body be taken by the storm and the creatures within?

Even as the skies open and the streets fill, an international art thief takes one last job to steal from the legendary Miskatonic Library. His mission is the Incendium Malificarum, powerful enough to end the world, or to save it. But is he simply a pawn of powers greater than he knows?

A young mother, separated by flood waters from her family, grieves and dreams as the world and the people around her begin to change, to become something else. But what dreams may come when the world has already ended?

But how did this begin? A disgraced college professor makes a Faustian bargain and discovers a conspiracy older than man, and a Key to unlock the fate of the entire human race. Can he save himself, can he save anyone, or is this predestined since the Great Flood?

And in the Pacific, He is rising.
