When a cursed artifact is stolen and the thief disappears, the race to locate him will force two unlikely heroes into a search neither wants a part of. Miskatonic University librarian Daisy Walker is plagued by the missing gap in her memory. Nameless dreams hint at a long-forgotten nightmare, a horrific incident that occurred upon her arrival in Arkham. It is a memory better left lost, but when her estranged friend Annabel reenters her life with tales of being shadowstalked, Daisy must delve into her dark past to find the awful truth.
Her fate will soon intertwine with that of Tony Morgan, a bounty hunter faced with a contract with a secretive, untrustworthy corporation to find the thief. His seemingly simple job will prove far more dangerous as his pursuit is impeded by syndicate bosses, a growing cult seeking to awaken ancient powers, and a strange bandaged man.
While Morgan’s shady employer works to cover its twisted agenda, these characters will travel through New York, Kingsport, and Arkham until their troubled journey leads them into the midst of eldritch horror...and face to face with living nightmares.
Dance of the Damned is the first novel in The Lord of Nightmares Trilogy based on the Arkham Horror board game. The suspenseful ride found within its pages will excite fans of H. P. Lovecraft, macabre tales of danger, and well-written, intense thrills.
