Description

INFINITY IN DEATH Vienna, 1908 Gabriele Ziegler is a young art student who becomes infatuated with charismatic archeologist Dr. Emeryk Quintillus. Only too late does she realize his true designs on her. He is obsessed with resurrecting Cleopatra and has retained the famed artist Gustav Klimt to render Gabriele as the Queen of the Nile, using ashes from Cleopatra's mummy mixed with the paint. The result is a lifelike portrait emitting an aura of unholy evil . . . Vienna, 2018 The Mortimer family has moved into Quintillus's former home, Villa DUrnstein. In its basement they find an original Klimt masterpiece-a portrait of Cleopatra art scholars never knew existed. But that's not all that resides within the villa's vault. Nine-year-old Heidi Mortimer tells her parents that a strange man lives there. Quintillus's desire to be with Cleopatra transcends death. His spirit will not rest until he has brought her back from the netherworld. Even if he has to sacrifice the soul of a child . . . Praise for Catherine Cavendish's Wrath of the Ancients "Cavendish has constructed such an elaborate plot-combined with painstaking research into Egyptian mythology-that the fantastical events taking place seem to literally 'come alive' on the pages before you." -horrorafterdark.com "Cavendish offers up an atmospheric gothic horror tale that effortlessly blends together history and the supernatural to create an unsettling horror story that will appeal to almost any horror fan." -thehorrorbookshelf.com
