The Alienist meets Dracula in this gripping, gothic-horror thriller from young UK phenom Chris Wooding. Thaniel, just seventeen, is a wych-hunter. Together, he and Cathaline -- his friend and mentor -- track down the fearful creatures that lurk in the Old Quarter of London. It is on one of these hunts that he first encounters Alaizabel Cray. Alaizabel is half-crazed, lovely, and possessed. Whatever dreadful entity has entered her soul has turned her into a strange and unearthly magnet -- attracting evil and drawing horrors from every dark corner. Cathaline and Thaniel must discover its cause -- and defend humanity at all costs.
As Thaniel and Cathaline rid London’s infested Old Quarter of demonic creatures, they met a woman who may be possessed.
