THE RED EQUINOX HAS DAWNED, AND THE OLD GODS WHO HAVE SLEPT FOR AEONS ARE STIRRING.
Urban explorer and photographer Becca Philips was raised in the shadow of Miskatonic University, steeped in the mysteries of her late grandmother’s work in occult studies. But what she thought was myth becomes all too real when cultists unleash terror on the city of Boston. Now she’s caught between a shadowy government agency called SPECTRA and the followers of an apocalyptic faith bent on awakening an ancient evil.
As urban warfare breaks out between eldritch monsters and an emerging police state, she must uncover the secrets of a family heirloom known as the Fire of Cairo to banish the rising tide of darkness before the balance tips irrevocably at the Red Equinox.
SPECTRA FILES BOOK 1
“Wynne has been able to do something few others have—fuse Lovecraftian themes to a thrilling action story that should appeal to adults and provide a gateway for the introduction of young adults to the ever expanding realms of Lovecraftian literature… Assuming you want your teens reading about extra-dimensional alien horrors lurking just beyond the thin threshold of reality.”
–Pete Rawlik, The NY Review of Science Fiction
“No Lovecraft fan–or horror fan for that matter–should miss this one! Philosophical and creepy…I enjoyed it immensely.”
“By turns rollicking, chilling, charming, and frightening.”
“Douglas Wynne’s RED EQUINOX is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat supernatural thriller that drop-kicks H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos into the 21st century. Wynne summons dark, ancient horrors into our hyperconnected, high-tech era with taut prose, captivating characters, and refreshing originality. The Great Old Ones will surely be pleased.”
— Michael M. Hughes, author of The Blackwater Lights trilogy
