About the Book

How can you save the world when it’s impossible to tell friend from foe?


Augustus Potts is in trouble. The Fulcrum is fast approaching, an event that will tip the world into a new magical Dark Age and expose mankind to the full terrors of the Aether. More and more powerful demons are materialising on Earth, and it is surely not long before humanity is overwhelmed.

While fighting the hell-hordes from the Aether, Augustus realises the runic sword that gives him all his supernatural powers is also turning him into the one thing he fears and despises the most: a demon. At the same time N’yotsu, his friend and the one-time saviour of mankind, is realising that the only way he can survive is to turn back into the hated demon Andras.

An encounter with a man calling himself the Witchfinder General shows Augustus that the world will never be the same again, with neighbour turned against neighbour through fear of demons. When his closest friends and allies start to disappear, Augustus finds himself in a race against time to not only save the world but also himself…

In this most desperate of times, when the line between good and evil is not just blurred but torn to pieces, could his greatest enemy also be mankind’s last hope?

The Demon Inside is the second book in Peter Oxley’s Infernal Aether Series, a dark gothic fantasy set in Victorian London.


Praise for The Demon Inside

“The Demon Inside is one tale you don’t want to miss! Steam punk, touch of horror, humor, fantasy creatures, action, adventure, and just plain fun reading. I loved this book! Great plot, loads of twists and wonderful characters of all sorts, and refreshing new fantasy. I read the book out of order but it didn’t seem to matter, it didn’t effect the story at all. I am now going to read book one for sure! Wonderful fantasy, can’t say enough about this book!”

– Montzalee Witmann,

“Strong captivating characters, a page turning plot: The Demon inside is an overall great read.”

Praise for The Infernal Aether

“Epic, Epic, Epic, this story was so good I couldn’t put it down and was sad that I reached the last page.”

—Aviar Savijon, Goodreads

“This no-holds-barred story features golems, bizarre devices, clockwork entities, an airship, soul-suckers, and more (including a cameo by Charles Dickens) and is told with wit and a touch of humor.”

—Kathy Burford,

“An awesome read. The author definitely has a handle on his art as a writer. Do yourself a favor and read it and everything he writes.”

—Alan McDonald,

“I liked the way the story was told almost as much as the story itself.”


“Steampunk meets sci-fi fantasy horror with a great deal of magic weaving it all together in a real page-turner. With unpredictable twists and characters that I loved and loathed in equal measure it was a thoroughly enjoyable book which I devoured in one sitting. I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
