Dr. Cushing's Chamber of Horrors

When I agreed to participate in the promotion of my friend Steve Sullivan's new book, I had every intention of reading Dr. Cushing's Chamber of Horrors and writing a full review. I won't start with the excuses; but, long story short, it didn't happen.

.

If it's any consolation, I did start reading it. And I want to continue... I will continue. However, it will be post-deadline. So far, it has me hooked. It doesn't waste any time getting into the action, yet manages to provide enough details about the characters that I already feel like I know and appreciate them.

.

I'm not very far into it, but a shipment of three mummies has just arrived and, while their father, "Dr." Leigh Cushing, is up north tracking a mysterious "Ice Man," his daughters, Opal and Topaz, must use the antiquities of their family's "museum" to bargain with the landlord in order to avoid eviction.

.

I'm embarrassed to say that I'm only on page 30, but if this much has happened already, what delights await in the next 400 or so? And, just because I didn't want to miss a deadline, there's no rule that I can't return at a later date to write more about it!

About the Book:

.

The monsters aren’t only in the museum!

.

Despite a lifetime of traveling with their father to collect strange artifacts, twins Topaz and Opal Cushing have never fully believed in monsters or the supernatural. Oh, sure, they share an eerie psychic connection, and their tarot card readings often come true, but… Werewolves? Vampires? Living mummies? None of those could be real. Those legends are just for rubes. Right?

.

Since the girls’ father has been away, though, strange things have been happening in the family’s little exhibit—and in the waxworks studio that shares their dilapidated Victorian mansion on the outskirts of London. Now, the twins’ dreams of a fun, romantic summer season are turning into a nightmare, and the monsters are running...
