Wormwood: A Novel
London, 1756. Panic fills the streets when the earth suddenly lurches forward and starts spinning out of control. Within moments, eleven days and nights flash through the sky, finally leaving the city in total darkness. Is the end of the world at hand? Agetta Lamian fears so. She’s the young housemaid of Dr. Sabian Blake, a scientist who has recently acquired the Nemorensis, the legendary book said to unlock the secrets of the universe. Then Agetta overhears Dr. Blake’s prophecy: a comet called Wormwood is headed toward London. . . .
