Book Spotlight - The Chemickal Marriage by Gordon Dahlquist

I'm delighted to be spotlighting a new offering from Zola Books, "The Chemickal Marriage" by Gordon Dahlquist.

A city ripped apart by riots and suicide bombs. A nation delivered into the arms of a madman. An invisible legion of enslaved minds. At the brink of the end of the world, Celeste Temple, the heroine of Gordon Dahlquist’s THE GLASS BOOKS OF THE DREAM EATERS and THE DARK VOLUME, plots her revenge and launches readers into THE CHEMICKAL MARRIAGE.

Believing her companions Cardinal Chang and Doctor Svenson to be dead, Miss Temple has committed her every resource to destroying those responsible, the Contessa di Lacquer-Sforza and Lord Robert Vandaariff, the powerful financier whose mind has been over-written with the corrupted and toxic memories of the murdered Comte d’Orkancz. 
But Celeste’s determination threatens to transform her into one of the very people she abhors, and when she finds her friends alive – each saved by a different enemy, at hideous cost – she risks losing her way, and perhaps her soul, altogether. As the storm of destruction rises, the three heroes must confront a world where good and evil can no longer be prised apart, and where hope has become the most impossible word of all.

THE CHEMICKAL MARRIAGE by Gordon Dahlquist (A Zola eBook original, ISBN 978-1-939126-02-3, Price: $13.99, available exclusively at www.zolabooks.com), the final volume in the Glass Books trilogy, completes the story begun in The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters and continued in The Dark Volume.
