With only one week until Halloween, thirteen-year-old Tommy Wilson is panic-stricken at the thought of coming out to his best friends. This momentous occasion is put on hold, however, when Tommy and his buddies come to a horrifying realization: the eerie dreams they share each night after falling asleep are, in fact, a physical portal to a hellish dimension known as R’lyeh—home of the Titan god Cthulhu. But R’lyeh’s dreamlike existence becomes a sickening reality when the boys discover that the disturbing inhabitants are plotting to cross over the dream threshold and destroy their hometown.

Overview

A group of friends must band together to defeat an ancient evil in Daniel R. Mathews’s terrifying debut, The Unseen Kingdom.

In a small New England town, thirteen-year-old Tommy Wilson’s biggest worry is coming out to his close-knit group of friends. All of that changes, however, when the boys discover a dream portal to R’lyeh—home to the Titan god Cthulhu himself.

Inhabited by monstrous creatures and eerie children who have appointed Tommy and his friends their new “apostles,” R’lyeh becomes a horrifying yet darkly fascinating world that proves to be increasingly real.

Meanwhile, the town’s population is suddenly overrun with a mysterious epidemic that threatens everyone. As the boys struggle to cope with what is happening, Tommy comes closer than ever to discovering the dark secret that lurks within R’lyeh itself—but will the price prove to be too costly? And, can the boys unlock the link between the secrets of R’lyeh and the devastation of their town’s population before it’s too late?

A truly unique work of fiction, The Unseen Kingdom is an LGBT coming-of-age novel skillfully infused with edge-of-your-seat horror, resulting in a wildly entertaining novel that will leave you guessing until the very last page.
