A beautiful, mysterious woman possesses the power to bewitch and destroy in Grand Master Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s breathtaking novel of erotic obsession and creeping horror
Her name is Fayre and she is a profound mystery, as inscrutable as she is beautiful. Every man who beholds her is lost, enslaved by desire and erotic fantasy. But Fayre’s irresistible sexual magnetism is not her only capability, as her last “lover” discovered much too late. He wanted to own her—and now he is dead.
From the moment the renowned brain surgeon Dr. Giles Todd first sets his eyes on Fayre, he is possessed. He must have this alluring, exquisite creature, body and soul, or he will surely go mad. Dr. Prentiss Fellkirk’s attraction, however, takes a markedly different form. A researcher of psychic and paranormal phenomena, Fellkirk can sense Fayre’s power and what lies within her perfect form—and he is determined to gain access to her most carefully protected secrets. An undeniable need drives both a man of rational science and a dedicated pioneer of the occult, making Todd and Fellkirk bitter and dangerous rivals as they are drawn toward the edge of an abyss. And in the chasm that looms before them waits an evil beyond imagination. . . .
