Fans of Cassandra Clare or Holly Black shouldn’t miss this sensational urban fantasy.
Everyone wants the heroine of The Devil’s Poetry.
They want her dead.
Callie, the only reader to have survived the magics of the Book, plans a wonderful future with the man she loves – only to have her life ripped apart by tragedy. Worse, a strange infection is passing through the population. An infection which leaves them white-eyed and terrifying. With the demonic Cadaveri increased a thousandfold, the world once again teeters on the brink of war.
Callie goes looking for answers, but since the Order of Sumer first recruited her to read its mysterious manuscript, the game has changed. As someone who understands the Book’s secrets, she is either a saviour or a curse to all who know her. Stranded in the US, hunted and penniless, she desperately needs allies. But the Order, the Cadaveri and the world’s intelligence services all have their own agendas – and all their spies are on her tail.
Callie must put aside love and grief, and re-evaluate everything she knows about the Reading. And to do that she must find that Book, and escape. Or die trying.
Enter the dangerous, twisty and frighteningly realistic world of The Devil’s Poetry series, where magic, romance and action collide and the monsters are all too human.
“This novel is PERFECT. There are twists that you feel like a punch to the gut.” CharlotteSomewhere
Louise Cole has spent her life reading and writing. And very occasionally gardening. Sometimes she reads as she gardens. She can be seen walking her dogs around North Yorkshire – she’s the one with a couple of cocker spaniels and a Kindle. She read English at Oxford – read being the operative word – and hasn’t stopped reading since.
In her day-job she is an award-winning journalist, a former business magazine editor and director of a media agency. She writes about business but mainly the business of moving things around: transport, logistics, trucks, ships, people.
Her fiction includes short stories, young adult thrillers, and other stuff which is still cooking.
