Zombies, zeppelins, mad scientists — oh my! Breathtaking adventure by New York Times bestselling author Jack Conner.
Young thief Katya Ivreski is in trouble. She’s just ripped off the wrong guy, a sadistic murderer addicted to alchemical drugs. If he catches her, death will be a mercy. She’s been living on the streets since she was a teen, surviving by her wits and daring, and only stealing from bad guys. Now her life could be cut short just when she’s about to make good. Her only hope is the powerful mob boss Ravic. In a city filled with mad scientists, zombies and sinister cults, he is feared far and wide.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Ravic is embroiled in a vicious gang war with an even more terrifying and mysterious figure known as Loqrin, who may be responsible for the wave of murders that has gripped the city for the last several months. Carried out by nightmarish creatures, dozens of people have been killed in gruesome ways, and that may just be the start. Soon the whole world could fall under Loqrin’s evil shadow . . . and possibly the shadow of an even more terrible power.
Katya is the world’s only hope. Ravic will offer her protection, but only if she agrees to find out what Loqrin is up to and stop him, by any means necessary. No pressure, Kat.
Nightmare City: Part One is the first volume of a two-part set of steampunk and fantasy adventure novels by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Jack Conner. If you like action-packed storytelling, Lovecraftian horrors, and unique twists and turns you won’t see coming, then you’ll love Jack Conner’s incredible mix of fantasy, adventure, horror and steampunk-ish action. Nightmare City takes place in the same world as Jack Conner’s The Atomic Sea series but is totally independent and can be read without having read The Atomic Sea.
