Golden, Christopher & James A. Moore
At long last, the follow-up to Christopher Golden and James A. Moore's controversial, Stoker-nominated novellaBloodstained Oz! A decade after the events of the first book, Bloodstained Wonderland finds Gayle Franklin and her fellow survivor, Elisa, trying to survive the London Blitz.
But it’s not merely the war or the Luftwaffe they need to worry about. As a child, Gayle saw her parents and neighbors murdered by vampiric creatures who’d spilled out a tornado straight from Oz. In the years since, the vampires have been busy knocking down the walls between dimensions and claiming them one at a time. Now they’ve found Gayle and Elisa again…not just creatures from Oz, but a whole cast of nightmarish characters from Wonderland. Some want to help them…but most want their blood. Their blood, and one other thing…the strange green pendant that Gayle took with her when she fled Kansas. A stone full of magic. A power called The Emerald Heart of Oz. If Gayle can learn the truth of what she possesses, she and Elisa might survive this Blitz…but first they have to make their way through a Bloodstained Wonderland.
