Description

An unnatural terror penetrating our reality preys on the dreams of its victims, in this darkly captivating novel set in the world of Arkham Horror 

Professor Miranda Ventham is having bad dreams – nothing new in 1920s Arkham – but hers are horrifying glimpses of a dark future. Now seriously ill, she books herself into the new sanatorium, Stroud Institute. With luck, the town’s eldritch taint won’t reach her there. And yet the nightmares worsen. With the aid of her friend, parapsychologist Agatha Crane, they delve into the background of the sanatorium’s enigmatic director, Donovan Stroud. Plagued by doubts, delusions, and terrifying visions, Miranda must unravel the shrouded history of the Strouds before she is trapped in a labyrinthine nightmare. Something sinister lurks at its heart, and it longs to be set free.

Featured Reviews

Another hit from the Arkham Horror series, it had what I was looking for from previous entries and I enjoy the way David Annandale writes a horror novel with a bit of mystery. The use of the 1920s in this book worked to its advantage and I had a blast reading this. The characters were what I was looking for and was invested in getting to know them. It left me satisfied and wanting the next chapter in this series.

A dark and gothic read that was chilling and creepy that I will think about for a while. I loved it, a great red for fans of dark/horror reads

Hits all the right notes of Lovecraft combined with the worldview and evolution of Cthulhu mythos that has evolved since Lovecraft's death. Creepy tale, will recommend.

In the Coils of the Labyrinth by David Annandale

Starring Professor Miranda Ventham who, suffering from tuberculosis, becomes a patient at a new Institute in Arkham to be cured. Partnered with a favorite character of mine, Agatha Crane, we learn that the Institute may have darker intentions than we think.

David Annandale once again shows he is well versed in the Arkham Files universe. Using characters, themes, and ideas from the Arkham Horror games we are drawn into a story that would fit perfectly into a game scenario.

The beauty of this book is how perfectly it fits into the Arkham Files universe, it would still be very enjoyable if you have never played an AH game before. Annandale combines a claustrophic setting, haunting entities, and an unreliable narrator that combine to leave you guessing what is going on until the very end.
