The glass books of the dream eaters by Gordon Dahlquist( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in Serbian and held by 0 libraries worldwide
It began with a simple note: a letter of rejection from Miss Temple's fiancé, written on crisp Ministry paper and delivered on her maid's silver tray. But for Miss Temple, Roger Bascombe's cruel rejection will ignite a harrowing quest for answers, plunging her into a mystery as dizzying as a hall of mirrors--and a remote estate where danger abounds and all inhibitions are stripped bare....Thus begins Gordon Dahlquist's debut novel of Victorian suspense--at once a dazzling feast for the senses and a beguiling, erotic literary adventure. Nothing could have prepared Miss Temple for where her pursuit of Roger Bascombe would take her--or for the shocking things she would find behind the closed doors of forbidding Harschmort Manor: men and women in provocative disguise, acts of licentiousness and violence, heroism and awakening. But she will also find two allies: Cardinal Chang, a brutal assassin with the heart of a poet, and a royal doctor named Svenson, at once fumbling and heroic--both of whom, like her, lost someone at Harschmort Manor. As the unlikely trio search for answers--hurtling them from elegant brothels to gaslit alleyways to shocking moments of self-discovery-- they are confronted by puzzles within puzzles. And the closer they get to the truth, the more their lives are in danger. For the conspiracy they face--an astonishing alchemy of science, perverted religion, and lust for power--is so terrifying as to be beyond belief. In a novel that shatters conventions and seethes with danger and eroticism, Gordon Dahlquist has made a spectacular literary debut. And in Miss Temple he has created an unforgettable guide through a disturbing, seductive, and all-too-real world. By turns brutal and tender, shocking and deliciously romantic, The Glass Books of The Dream Eaters is a novel for the ages, a bold and brilliant work of the imagination
