Jennifer (phoenixfirerose) | 6 comments Hello readers, thank you for reading my thread. I am looking for beta readers for my 80k completed novel, Afterworld: Celestial. It is the first book in its series and is a hybrid of cosmic horror and dark fantasy, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's mythos (my novel has its own mythos and does not use Cthulhu or anything he established for his mythos). The story is told from the perspective of two main characters and includes supernatural creatures and themes. Here is the current blurb.

Death was not the end.

Two men must face their destiny to change the course of the universe.

London, 1895. Researcher Lucerne Winters wanted nothing more than to be the husband and father he had always dreamed of. But when an opportunity to explore the existence of another world presents itself, Lucerne cannot resist. In the midst of an experiment, catastrophe strikes – and Lucerne wakes to find himself trapped on a hostile alien world called the Void, now separated from his family by the boundary of life and death. With his mind tormented by terrors, Lucerne must find a way to return to his loved ones and stop the eldritch monsters of the Void from consuming all life beyond the stars.

In a startling discovery, eccentric Dr. Haliastur’s dark sacrifice brings forth slumbering cosmic horrors from beyond our world. Their intentions mysterious and their power unfathomable, they arrive to lead humanity toward another destiny. As their influence grows, Dr. Haliastur begins a descent into the madness of learning the unknowable. Struggling with a vision of the end of the world, he entrusts its fate to creatures humanity was never meant to meet.
