Wrath of N'kai

An Arkham Horror Novel
In the world of Arkham Horror

The first in a new range of novels of eldritch adventure from the wildly popular Arkham Horror, an international thief of esoteric artifacts stumbles onto a nightmarish cult in 1920s New England.

Countess Alessandra Zorzi, international adventurer and thief, arrives in Arkham pursuing an ancient body freshly exhumed from a mound in Oklahoma, of curious provenance and peculiar characteristics. But before she can steal it, another party beats her to it. During the resulting gunfight at the Miskatonic Museum, the countess makes eye contact with the petrified corpse and begins an adventure of discovery outside her wildest experiences. Now, caught between her mysterious client, the police, and a society of necrophagic connoisseurs, she finds herself on the trail of a resurrected mummy as well as the star-born terror gestating within it.

     More about Josh Reynolds

Wrath of N’Kai is yet more evidence, were it needed, that Reynolds is the reigning master of the occult detective genre. There is noone who does it better, and Wrath of N’Kai should take pride of place in anyone’s occult horror collection.”
SciFi and Fantasy Reviewer


“A solid entry in the canon. This makes Wrath of N’kai both a good introduction to the setting and a worthwhile read for the longtime fan.”
Strange Assembly


“I really enjoyed this book, Reynolds did an excellent job in writing a story that is accessible to readers who have never read an H P  Lovecraft story or played the board game, but still has plenty of nods to the readers who have. This really feels like a story that was set a hundred years ago, with characters often speaking in that 1920s slang and gangsters slinging tommy guns.”

Praise for Josh Reynolds

“Classic pulp adventure story, fast paced and engrossing. He effortlessly captures the feel of the period in his prose.”
– The British Fantasy Society

“An effortless read and will do very nicely for anyone looking for high quality pulp fantasy action.”
– Starburst magazine

It is the height of the Roaring Twenties – a fresh enthusiasm for the arts, science, and exploration of the past have opened doors to a wider world, and beyond... And yet, a dark shadow grows in the city of Arkham. Alien entities known as Ancient Ones lurk in the emptiness beyond space and time, writhing at the thresholds between worlds. Occult rituals must be stopped and alien creatures destroyed; before the Ancient Ones make our world their ruined dominion. Only a handful of investigators stand against the horrors threatening to tear this world apart. Will they prevail?
