Betrayed by his closest friend and rapidly drinking through his inheritance, Augustus Merriwether Potts returns to London in the hope of finding his fortune. Instead, he meets a mysterious stranger who thrusts him into a terrifying underworld of demons, ghosts and clockwork men. Fighting back against these new and unusual threats, Augustus and his friends come face-to-face with a creature which has been manipulating them and all humanity: a demon known as Andras, the God of Lies.
Andras has a plan: to recreate the Earth in his own hellish image using the power of the Aether, a terrifying otherworld populated by creatures from beyond humanity’s worst nightmares. With the world’s governments in thrall to the demons, Augustus and his friends find themselves in the front line of this battle to save the world against all the odds.
Dickens’ London has never seemed so scary. The Infernal Aether is the first book in a gothic fantasy series which has been described as “an elegant and chilling indulgence”. If you like page turners with unpredictable twists and chills then you’ll love Peter Oxley’s The Infernal Aether.

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, Amazon.com
“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, Amazon.com
“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.”
