Aubrey's love for Kyle is tinged with an inexplicable fear of this intense young man, and Kyle must reciprocate that love by saving him. For they have called up the Devil - and he is here.
This pulp novel is rather slow moving, but has a reasonably interesting story. It doesn't have as much of a sexual focus as some and the horror elements are a lot more understated than in many stories.
A 19th century Englishman is slowly drawn into an occult world by a beautiful man that he wants to take as his lover. Over time he finds out that this man is involved in the potential raising of a daemon (from its original definition meaning a minor god or similar supernatural being).
As he and an inspector from Scotland Yard follow the clues and the trail of dead bodies, they slowly figure out who is calling the shots and what the ultimate goal of the ceremony is.
Virtually every character in the book has same-sex desires.
