THE DRESDEN FILES
FEASTING WITH PANTHERS
In Victorian London, tea merchant and occult enthusiast Sir Justin Morningway has been saddled with his orphaned nephew, Harold Dresden. To have Harry trained to further Sir Justin's ambitions, he sends Harry to his acquaintance Robert, Viscount Bainbridge, for tutoring in the dark arts. In this spellbinding novel by MJ, with color covers and interior art by Elfqueen, Morningway suspects neither his nephew's actual abilities nor the alliance Harry will forge with the wealthy, handsome, older sorcerer. After Bainbridge is forced to meet Morningway in an illegal duel, he and Harry flee to Paris, and then to America -- to Massachusetts, where Bainbridge plans to learn more about an ancient grimoire filled with the secrets of necromancy and the worship of loathsome gods and sea creatures. Oscar Wilde, Aleister Crowley, Sherlock Holmes and the residents of Arkham, Massachusetts, all cross Bainbridge's and Harry's paths as the two magicians come face to face with the murderous rites of the Esoteric Order of Dagon. Having grown to love one another, can the snarky English necromancer and his headstrong student stay together in the midst of deaths both magical and mundane, resurrection of the dead, occult wars, and the arrest of Bainbridge's close friend Wilde?
