Publisher's Summary

Dr. Andrew Doran is back! Narrowly saving the world from the cosmic advance of the Nazi armies, Andrew Doran is loathing with his new position as dean of Miskatonic University. The duties of a dean are too slow for the lifestyle that Andrew had become accustomed to... but he doesn't have to wait long until he finds that the previous dean had sold documents to the Nazis direct from the library of Miskatonic University. Specifically, the documentation of a fateful voyage by Dr. William Dyer to the Antarctic and the horrors he faced there.
Knowing that the German army won't hesitate to travel to the Antarctic and seize the alien weaponry that is held there, Andrew and his faithful companion, Leo, embark on an adventure to find the missing Dr. Dyer and beat the Nazis to the lost city in the frozen wasteland at the end of the world.
To make matters worse, Andrew is battling his own demons in the form of the physical manifestation of his own insanity. Can Andrew find the missing William Dyer and beat the Nazi menace to the cache of weapons before his insanity literally consumes him?

A pretty good sequel

This (hopefully continuing) series is a fun and nicely crafted urban fiction spin on Lovecraft. Plot, pacing, and style remind me of early 20th century noir. Think Maltese Falcon with monsters and nazis.

Aside from the scattered use of painful French accents, the reader really works for this title. Mainly because I think he really understands the title character.

The book is narrated by the protagonist, a gritty, pragmatic man of action who hunts evil but sucks at the paperwork. As with the previous book, it's action from beginning to end, with several radical scene changes.

The first book was mainly set in a tour from the US across the Atlantic and through nazi-occupied Europe. This one spans a trip to Antarctica, but also explores more metaphysical scenery including the dream land and a non-euclidean alien city.

I wouldn't have minded a few more hours of content, but the story really didn't need it. For both reasons I look forward to what I hope will be further books in the series.

It's worth the purchase, in my opinion, but I had a review copy.

Rip roaring pulp adventure, Indy meets Shoggoths

A great follow up to The Statement of Andrew Doran. The story follows the breadcrumbs laid down by HP Lovecraft in At the Mountains of Madness, The Shadow over Innsmouth and The Colour out of Space, telling us what happens after the old gent of Providence finished his books seventy years ago. The story has the great ingredients of what might be called a 'boys' own adventure': Nazis to thwart, monsters to kill, a brave group of heroes with complex problems, multiple villains and a cracking pace of writing.

Personal opinion, I think the narrator did a better job than the previous book (and he was good last time). He is very like Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones and it's a great match for the story!

You don't need to read the other books to appreciate this but I'd recommend it as they would round out the overall story.

if you love HP Lovecraft then this loving set of stories glory in his world and let you return to experience the horror and the adventure.
