The sequel to Dr Blessing's Curse, Or, The Baby In The Bell-Jar.
Note: this title is best read after having first read Dr Blessing's Curse, Or, The Baby In The Bell-Jar.
In this second Dr Blessing novella, the chase is on as Victorian physician Dr Blessing pits his wits against a private inquiry agent and an operative sent by a shadowy organization, both intent on uncovering the secret of the bell-jar. Dr Blessing stands poised at the fringe of the destruction of his old life and the creation of a new self, but who will he take with him? Who will stay true? Who will succumb to new temptations? Who will survive The Beast And The Bell-Jar?
Ramping up the action, the story of Dr Blessing continues, with all the horror and eeriness of the original tale, Dr Blessing's Rapture picks up the pace with desperate rooftop scrambles, brutality and elements of a dark fantasy tale.
The story follows not only Dr Blessing this time, but shifts between the doctor himself and his two pursuers who have different motives, different methods but the utter conviction that the doctor must be stopped!
