Witchcraft! Ghosts! Vampires! Tarot Cards! Magdalena, a bored secretary at Charles University in Prague, has come to the aid of Fen’ka, a woman lynched by a mob for witchcraft in 1356. Unknown to Magdalena, Fen’ka cursed the city as she died and Magdalena has now unwittingly reawakened the curse and brought to Prague both the Dearg-due (a voracious Irish female vampire) and a dangerous Jesuit who, upon hearing of what transpired with Fen’ka, develop their own nefarious agendas. To access the enormous potential power to which Fen’ka holds the key, they dupe Magdalena into helping destroy the city. A small group of academics realize the danger facing Prague and struggle to keep one step ahead of the Dearg-due and the Jesuit, hoping to send the Dearg-due back to her grave.

With degrees in medieval history and theology from Yale and St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Academy, Stephen Morris brings his extensive knowledge and meticulous research in medieval magical practices to all his historical-urban fantasy writing. In each of his novels, the magical and fantastic elements are all drawn from authentic occult beliefs and practices from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance or from local legends and folklore. A former priest, he served as the Eastern Orthodox chaplain at Columbia University. His previous academic writing has dealt primarily with Late Antiquity and Byzantine church life. Stephen, a Seattle native, is now a long-time New York resident and currently lives in Manhattan with his partner, Elliot.
