The Wandering Jew's Daughter
THE WANDERING JEW'S DAUGHTER
by Paul Féval
adapted by Brian Stableford
cover by Tim Lambon
The rays of sunlight passing over Lotte's diaphanous beauty lacked the power to color her whiteness. 'May God have pity on us!' stammered the nurse. 'She was like that when I saw her for the first time.' In a voice as sweet as a lullaby, Lotte murmured: "My Father is coming.'
Throughout the ages, immortals have battled fiercely, until the daughter of one of them falls in love with a young French nobleman.
"The Wandering Jew's Daughter (1863) anticipates later developments in popular fiction, featuring an invulnerable (but flawed) hero who stops bullets and blades with his body and gives succor to the wounded. The book adds another item to an already-extensive catalogue of Féval's anticipations of modern mythology."-Brian Stableford.
