Love & Sleep continues the tale of Ægypt, a magical country displaced from the physical world. Historian Pierce Moffett's route toward Ægypt had been charted from his youth in the coal hills of Kentucky, where he was introduced to Catholic doctrine and country mysticism, to an urchin girl with ancestral ties to werewolves, and to an elemental creature that may have abetted the forest fire he accidentally started. In the current day, Pierce and Boney Rasmussen, his patron, search the work of historical novelist Fellowes Kraft for clues to a fabulous treasure--an endeavor that parallels the adventures of Giordano Bruno and Dr. John Dee, centuries before, to sort out a cosmology on the edge of profound change.

Stately, gorgeously rendered, both wide and deep, this second volume in the Ægypt quartet will reward those searching for an absorbing literary fantasy.
