The Demon Inside: Book 2 In The Infernal Aether Series


How can you save the world when it's impossible to tell friend from foe?

London, 1868.

Augustus Potts is in trouble. The runic sword that gives him his supernatural powers is also turning him into the one thing he fears and despises the most: a demon.

He's not the only one: N'yotsu, the one-time saviour of mankind, realises that the only way he can survive is to turn back into the evil demon Andras.

When his closest friends and allies start to disappear, Augustus finds himself in a race against time to save his soul as well as the whole world.

For the Fulcrum is fast approaching, bringing a new magical Dark Age which will expose mankind to the full terrors of the Aether. More and more powerful demons are materialising on Earth, and it will not be long before humanity is overwhelmed.

In this most desperate of times, when the line between good and evil is not just blurred but torn to pieces, could mankind's greatest enemy also be our only hope?

The Demon Inside is the second book in Peter Oxley'sInfernal Aether Series, a dark gothic fantasy set in Victorian London described as "fantasy at its best", "epic" and "no holds barred". If you like electrifying action, rich characters and demons galore, then you'll loveThe Demon Inside.

Praise for Book One: The Infernal Aether

"Steampunk meets sci-fi fantasy horror with a great deal of magic weaving it all together in a real page-turner. With unpredictable twists and characters that I loved and loathed in equal measure it was a thoroughly enjoyable book which I devoured in one sitting. I can't wait to see what happens next."

"Epic, Epic, Epic, this story was so good I couldn't put it down and was sad that I reached the last page."
-Aviar Savijon, Goodreads

"This no-holds-barred story features golems, bizarre devices, clockwork entities, an airship, soul-suckers, and more (including a cameo by Charles Dickens) and is told with wit and a touch of humor."
-Kathy Burford,
