The Stress of Her Regard
When Michael Crawford discovers his bride brutally murdered in their wedding bed, he is forced to flee. Yet it is not the revengeful townspeople he fears, but the deadly embrace of the malignant apparition claiming him as her own bridegroom.
Crawford will not travel alone; soon he is aided by his fellow victims, the greatest poets of his day -- Byron, Keats, and Shelley. Together they embark upon a desperate jorney crisscrossing Europe, battling the vampiric fiend who seeks her ultimate pleasure in their ravaged bodies and imperiled souls.
Telling a secret history of passion and terror, Tim Powers (The Anubis Gates, Declare, Three Days to Never) masterfully recasts the tragic lives of the Romantics into a uniquely frightening tale. Back in print for the first time since 1994, this newly-revised edition of The Stress of Her Regard will thrill both Powers fans and newcomers to this gripping Gothic tour de force.
