The setting is London in the 1890s. The capital of Britain is at the height of its powers, holding sway over the largest empire the world has ever seen. But now it is under attack, by creatures rising out of the ground, attacking the populace. A massive infection is the result, transforming ordinary human beings into shambling, moss-covered monsters. Standing in their way is Dr. Korvus, inventor, visionary and, quite possibly, madman. With the aid of Plato, his biomechanical rat, and his two other companions, he is determined to rid the world of a threat which could destroy the entire human race. Children of the Abyss is the first in a series of novels chronicling the adventures of Dr. Korvus and Plato, and their supernatural adventures in Victorian London.
