“The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim” is a dramatic Gothic horror trilogy set in the late Victorian era, in its haunted country manor houses, dim London streets and the desolate Scottish moors. It tells the story of Edgar Brim, who at age sixteen, battling debilitating inner fear (or what we now know as “anxiety”) but armed with the help of an eccentric collection of comrades, embarks upon the pursuit and assassination of “the evil three.” Each novel presents a different creature. In the first book, entitled the same as the entire trilogy, the monster appears to be a revenant which has found its way into Bram Stoker’s latest book.
“Monster” is the second book in the Edgar Brim series, in which Edgar and his friends encounter their next foe, a terrifying being that they begin to believe once made an appearance in a particularly famous novel by Mary Shelley.
“Demon,” concludes The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim trilogy with a confrontation with the most frightening monster of all … but is this demon roaming the streets of London in murderous pursuit of Edgar and his friends, or does it reside in their minds?
