Desdaemona’s done a bad, bad thing. Again. So she’s back on the road; and where better to look for shelter than with the boy she was running from before? But trouble follows. If it wasn’t Jacey’s parents who sent the deadly Twa Corbies in chase of her, then who was it?

Ben Macallan, pseudonym of award-winning crime and thriller writer Chaz Brenchley, returns to the urban fantasy world he created in Desdaemona with another terrifying, sexy, sinister story that treads the line between mundane reality and the supernatural.

Deep under London, among the lost and rejected of two worlds, answers begin to emerge from Desi’s hidden past. Answers that send her north, in a flight that turns into a hunt, with strange companions and stranger prey.

This is a whole new kind of urban fantasy: dynamic and emotionally charged, Pandaemonium will delight fans of Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker.

"Riveting... A gripping ghost-ride through the daemon-haunted landscape of modern England."
-Charles Stross

“A bizarrely mature message for a perpetually immature subgenre... Despite all the melodrama and the neuroses, I wrapped up Desdaemona keen to know what happened next.”
-Pornokitsch on Desdaemona
