Fathomless is a young adult dark fantasy series set in the universe of the Cthulhu Mythos 1. The series follows the story of Sean Wyndham, who has tried to stay away from the lure of magic. However, he has been offered the chance to study the occult with a proper teacher and maybe gain a handle on his tempestuous callings. Accompanied by his best friend, Eddy, and their enigmatic new friend, Daniel, Sean wades out deeper into mystical legend and shadow. With hints and secrets buried long in family lore, they turn to the suspicious Reverend Orne once more for assistance. But as Sean deepens his understanding of his power, the darkness is waking.



The story follows Sean Wyndham, who stumbles upon an occult book in a rare book store in Arkham. The book has an ad seeking an apprentice sorcerer, from a newspaper dated March 21, 1895. Sean decides to answer the ad, hoping that it won’t be a hoax. The advertiser, Reverend Redemption Orne, claims to be a master of the occult born more than 300 years ago. To prove his legitimacy, Orne gives Sean instructions to summon a harmless but useful familiar. However, Sean’s ceremony takes a dark turn, and he instead accidentally beckons a bloodthirsty servant to the Cthulhu Mythos god Nyarlathotep. The ritual is preemptively broken, and now Sean must find and bind the servitor, before it grows too strong to contain
