More About The Map of Chaos by Felix J. Palma; Nick Caistor
 
 
 
Overview
From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Map of Time" and "The Map of the Sky," the final installment in the award-winning trilogy that "The Washington Post "called a big, genre-bending delight.
When the person he loves most dies in tragic circumstances, the mysterious protagonist of "The Map of Chaos" does all he can to speak to her one last time. A session with a renowned medium seems to offer the only solution, but the experience unleashes terrible forces that bring the world to the brink of disaster. Salvation can only be found in "The Map of Chaos," an obscure book that he is desperate to uncover. In his search, he is given invaluable help by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Lewis Carroll, and of course by H. G. Wells, whose" "Invisible Man seems to have escaped from the pages of his famous novel to sow terror among mankind. They alone can discover the means to save the world and to find the path that will reunite the lovers separated by death.
Proving once again that he is a master of ingenious plotting ("Kirkus Reviews"), Felix J. Palma brings together a cast of real and imagined literary characters in Victorian-Age London, when spiritualism is at its height. "The Map of Chaos" is a spellbinding adventure that mixes impossible loves, nonstop action, real ghosts, and fake mediums, all while paying homage to the giants of science fiction."

The action of the wondrous final volume in Spanish author Palma’s speculative thriller trilogy (which began with The Map of Time) unfolds in several Victorian eras in parallel universes, beginning with esteemed biologist Herbert George Wells’s attempt to create a virus that will allow the residents of his doomed steampunk world to escape to another realm free of threat. The scene shifts to the triumphant conclusion of the investigation of a werewolf by Insp. Cornelius Clayton, rising star in Scotland Yard’s mysterious Special Branch. But it soon flits away again to follow a second H.G. Wells, who is embroiled with his loving wife, Jane, in a romantic comedy involving another couple, Montgomery Gilmore and Emma Harlow. Arthur Conan Doyle joins this quartet on a series of adventures that turn ever darker. Palma displays a deft hand with this diverse group of characters and genres, blending them effortlessly into a fantastic yarn. Agent: Tom Colchie, Colchie Agency. (June)
