Product description

Review

1920s New York thrums with giddy life in this gripping first in a new trilogy from Printz winner Bray. . .the intricate plot and magnificently imagined details of character, dialogue and setting take hold and don't let go. Not to be missed. (Kirkus (starred review))

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. (Daniel Kraus ALA Booklist)

The paranormal meets the roaring Twenties in the scary and posi-tute-ly amazing, The Diviners. (Bliss)

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)

Packed with hilarious 1920s slang, snappy one-liners and intriguing period detail, this is a beautifully-crafted novel with a complex, twisting plot and plenty of creepy moments that will keep readers right on the edge of their seats. Introducing us to an intriguing ensemble cast of characters as well as wonderfully bright and breezy heroine in Evie - and of course, a truly terrifying villain - The Diviners is a hugely entertaining adventure that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next instalment. (Booktrust)

READ . . . sequined-packed, serial-killer thriller with supernatural overtones, think the Jazz Age meets Twilight - AND it's the first part of a trilogy. (Instyle)

Book Description

The queen of historical fiction takes on 1920s Jazz Age New York - with a supernatural twist
