Description
Too fond of parties and too stubborn not to speak her mind, Evie O'Neill has been shipped off from her Ohio hometown to stay with her uncle in New York City, and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic, in this slam-bang opening of a new trilogy for young adults by Libba Bray, author of the Gemma Doyle trilogy and the 2010 Printz Award winner Going Bovine. It's 1926, and Manhattan is buzzing with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and Jazz Age lotharios. The only catch is that Uncle Will has an obsession with the occult, and Evie worries that he'll discover her secret: a supernatural power that has only ever brought her trouble. But when dead girls begin turning up, branded with cryptic symbols, Evie realizes her gift could help to catch a serial killer.

"Here's your headline, boss: 'Small-Town Dame Lands in Big Apple, Goes Wild, Tries to Stop Resurrection of Antichrist.' It'll sell bundles! Indeed it will, as Bray continues her winning streak with this heedlessly sprawling series starter set in Prohibition-era New York.... The book is big and wants to be the kind of thing you can lose yourself in. Does it succeed? It's jake, baby."—Booklist

"One kick-ass setting, a cast of brilliant characters, a host of amazing supernatural powers and one creepy-as-hell killer on the loose.... Rich, complex and addictive—an elaborate web of stories, winding together to create one masterpiece tapestry of a book."—guardian.co.uk
