Press Release: Deals Done
Three Book World Rights Deal With Titan For Dark Fantasy Series By Mark Morris

Posted at 5:15PM Tuesday 04 Dec 2012

Cath Trechman, Fiction Editor of Titan Books in London, has concluded a world rights deal for three dark fantasy novels by British author Mark Morris with agent John Jarrold.

The series is called Obsidian Heart, and the first volume is titled THE WOLVES OF LONDON, due for delivery in spring 2013.

Alex Locke is a rough diamond, an ex-con turned psychology lecturer, who one day receives an offer that he cannot refuse. What follows drags him down into a nightmare more terrifying than anything he could ever have imagined, a nightmare in which he is pursued not only across the country, but ultimately across time by the fabled Wolves of London, a group of ruthless assassins with unbelievable powers at their fingertips. Blending crime, horror, steampunk and dark urban fantasy, Obsidian Heart is a huge, phantasmagorical jigsaw puzzle of a story told in three very distinct parts, each with its own unique atmosphere. Full of twists and turns, it is a Weaveworld for the twenty-first century - brash, audacious and packed with surreal and outrageous imagery.

Cath Trechman said: "We're delighted to be publishing Mark Morris's brand-new series Obsidian Heart. It's a dark supernatural time-travel thriller which readers will find impossible to resist."
