Dymion Gately stands at a crossroads. He encounters a powerful peer, the heir of a real estate empire, and believes that his future will become clear. Torn between a desire for love and solitude, freedom and purpose, Dymion may discover the answer to life in a friendly alliance. Unfortunately, succumbing to the throes of privilege may also leave him devastated.
The Seat of Gately employs Victorian flare and modernist depth to create an alternate supernatural world. A society of werewolves pursue both conventional and illicit desires in a philosophical exploration of sex and identity. Issues of marriage, ambition, and sexuality challenge norms and leave complex characters with glorious opportunities and tragic obstacles.
