An occultist invades Europe at the head of an African army. His goal—the conquest of death itself.
No one knows quite what to make of Nigel Considine. He calls himself “the High Executive” and he has inspired the entire continent of Africa to revolt and make war upon Europe. Is Considine a magician, a charismatic politician, a divinely annointed prophet, or the antichrist? A small circle of London friends all seem to disagree, even as Considine’s influence is tearing England apart…
Shadows of Ecstasy is Charles Williams’ most confounding novel—chilling, intriguing, ambiguous, and exciting. Along with C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, Williams was a member of the Inklings, a society of writers in Oxford, England who changed the world with their mythopoetic vision.
