Released 31 May 2011
New town. New girl. New job. That’s good, right?
Not really. Not when the girl can pretty much tear a vampire in two and the job is trying to find her kid sister, who’s in trouble with creatures even worse than the ones that have been trying to find you for how-many-years-has-it-been?!
In Ben Macallan’s terrifying, sexy, sinister urban fantasy debut, Jordan may look like a teenager but he treads the line between mundane reality and the supernatural in a world where vampires don’t glitter and runaways don’t just disappear – they’re hunted.
Jordan helps kids on the run find their way back home. He's good at that. He should be he s a runaway himself. Sometimes he helps the kids in other, stranger, ways. He looks like a regular teenager, but he s not. He acts like he s not exactly human, but he is. He treads the line between mundane reality and the world of the supernatural. Desdaemona also knows the non-human world far too well. She tracks Jordan down and enlists his aid in searching for her lost sister Fay, who did a Very Bad Thing involving an immortal. This may be a mistake for both of them. Too many people are interested now, and some of them are not people at all. Ben Macallan s urban fantasy debut takes you on a terrifying journey, lifting the curtain on what really walks our city streets.
Macallan is not only a pseudonym of award-winning crime and thriller writer Chaz Brenchley, but has also appeared as a character in his books, Dead of Light and Light Errant. Brenchley has now let Macallan out to speak for himself in Desdaemona, a whole new kind of urban fiction. Dynamic and emotionally charged, Desdaemona will delight fans of Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker.
