About the Series: Herbert West
Four novels, in which Herbert West, a scientist obsessed with reversing death, is transformed into a physician of last resort. From ancient Arkham to the agony of the Great War, from Acadie to the islands of the West Coast, a brilliant but amoral physician is subjected to travails and entanglements, to become a source of healing -- and of peril.

Reviews of Islands of the Gulf Volume 2, the Treasure by Audrey Driscoll

ReadersEbooks reviewed on Dec. 30, 2012

This book is written in a beautiful style, as all of Audrey Driscoll’s books. It is a gem. The story progresses through the book, with explanations to satisfy many of the unanswered questions from the previous books in the series, and raising other questions to be answered in the final book of the series, Hunting the Phoenix. We’re looking forward to reading that book. This book is strongly recommended for any one who reads for the pleasure that fine writing can bring.

I'm writing this while I'm still reading the novel. I'm absolutely loving it--couldn't wait to find out what happened to Herbert West after volume 1. As a person with many gay male friends, I think that side of Herbert's charcter and the interactions of other characters with his homosexuality, is very well handled.
