Synopsis: -- WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD --
When Duke University receives a staggering grant that comes with one unusual condition, the pairing of parapsychologist Dr. William Boles and crypto-zoologist Dr. Hugh Blakley, the two are thrown together despite the career-long loathing they share for each other’s disciplines. In only a matter of days, however, the two egocentric academics discover that if they can’t find a way to work together, they may not survive to teach another semester. And, if they don’t survive, the entire world could be right behind them.
Once again top urban fantasy author C.J. Henderson has teamed up with long-time writing partner Bruce Gehweiler to create another totally unique series. Considering Henderson’s well-known mastery of the horror genre, as well as Gehweiler’s decades of research into all matters fortean, this very well may be the one series they were destined to create together.
This amazing volume gathers all the previous adventures of Doctors Blakley and Boles--Bigfoot, the Kongomato, the Headless Horseman, El Chupacabra, demons, zombies, shuggoths, and a whole lot more--capping the action with the never-before-seen novella, Where Angels Fear.
It’s action, adventure, and romance as only Henderson & Gehweiler can deliver it!
Review: While they are both professors at Duke University, Dr. Blakley is a cryptozoologist, who searches for animals whose existence has not been proven or are considered extinct and Dr. Boles is a parapsychologist, who studies paranormal phenomena such as telepathy or clairvoyance. They rarely have the same approach or outlook on matters, yet they are forced to work together in order for the university to receive a very large grant. ‘Where Angels Fear’ is based on the premise “...For Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread” and the adventures the professors find themselves on give great credence to the notion. The witty and sometimes thoughtful dialogue and well-developed secondary characters combine with the prickly pair to make for some exciting adventures on the scale of Indiana Jones.
