The High House: The Evenmere Chronicles (Paperback)


Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
The infinite house, Evenmere, is the mechanism that runs the universe.

The lamps must be lit or the stars die.
The clocks must be wound or Time ceases.
The Balance between Order and Chaos must be preserved or Existence crumbles.

Appointed the Steward of Evenmere, Carter Anderson must learn-before it is too late-the strange rules of the house. He must travel its winding corridors and secret passages to the myriad countries lying within its walls.

He has little time to act; the Anarchists have seized control of the Doors; the Black River is rising; the Eternity Clock is running down. His actions will determine the fate of Reality. But his enemies are strong, and the Room of Horrors is never far from him.
