Publisher's Summary

Somewhere on the desolate moors of Victorian England sits a monolithic black house. It is not merely a haunted mansion, but a yawning gateway unto the chaotic evil of the cosmos. Emmaline Heath, a dark-haired young woman fleeing a tortured past, is sent to live in its monstrous wings under the care of her godfather Carax Hillam. But it is not only the sinister Hillam Hall and its guardian that await her there on the blasted heath: with them are a horde of Lovecraftian Elder gods, tortured ghosts, a familiar and fair stranger, and her own immense destiny.

With the help of the souls of two damned lovers, Red Eyre and Black Tom, a strange hare-like familiar called Hum, and her fated and melancholy love from beyond time, Hyland, Emmaline will come to know her own true nature–as a witch, and a being far greater than humankind–and with this knowledge accept her destiny as the one who will close the cosmic gateway the dreaded Hillam Hall sits upon, before the hellish armies of eldritch night can pour forth upon the world.

Hillam Hall is an epic dark tale that integrates several gothic traditions (classic horror, Lovecraftian cosmic/eldritch, and romance) into an amalgamation of the best elements of each, giving it a singularity that is both rooted in the best horror traditions and fresh in its tonality. This book will appeal to fans of the cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft (At the Mountains of Madness), the classic gothic works of Edgar Allan Poe (The Fall of the House of Usher), Mary Shelley (Frankenstein) and Emily Brontë (Wuthering Heights), and the dark romances of Anne Rice (The Witching Hour) while bringing a contemporary feminism and fresh voice of its own upon the trappings of the genre.
