The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim
Written by Shane Peacock
Publication Date: May 3, 2015
Hardcover | 256 Pages | Ages 12+
The first in this dark and dramatic new Gothic trilogy is set in the late Victorian era, in its haunted country manor houses, dark London streets and the desolate Scottish moors. It tells the story of Edgar Brim, who at age sixteen, battling debilitating inner fears, but armed with the help of an eccentric collection of comrades, embarks upon the pursuit and assassination of “the evil three.”
We can’t wait to see you at the Grand Opening Reception on the exhibit floor on Friday! Hellooo Boston! Please follow @TundraBooks and @Shane_Author on twitter. You can also follow #alamw16 for the latest news and updates.
