Nineteen Eighty-Four, The Craft and 007 collide in an all new magical spy thriller from Blake Northcott, the international best-selling author of Arena Mode.
The North Valley Grimoire is Kickstarter's #1 MOST FUNDED & MOST BACKED original novel of 2018!
Prisoners locked in indefinite detention.
It's all in the name of national security, or so we’re told. While the government expands its power behind a veil of secrecy, a complicit media remains silent.
As the world continues to spiral, it’s business as usual in North Valley—a sleepy suburb known for little more than golf courses and overpriced real estate . . . until a series of murders casts a shadow over the town.
When Calista Scott investigates the death of her classmate, she uncovers a secret the government has been protecting all along: magick is real.
It's the most dangerous weapon in existence.
And the grimoire her classmate left behind is the equivalent of a loose nuke.
“I love this book. Blake Northcott has seamlessly shifted genres and proven she’s as masterful in magic and fantasy as she was in science-fiction. Don’t pick this up unless you’re prepared to not put it down.”
- Mark Millar (Writer of Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Marvel's Civil War, Old Man Logan)
"There is world-building going on all throughout fiction these days -- and then there is Blake Northcott taking it to another level. Telling the story of a magical conspiracy through the lens of teen adventure, The North Valley Grimoire is what would happen if James Patterson and J.K. Rowling had a baby and it grew up to be a best-seller."
- Scott Lobdell (Hollywood screenwriter of blockbuster Happy Death Day, Marvel Comics writer of Uncanny X-Men and X-Factor)
"From the first paragraph, The North Valley Grimoire grabs the reader. And once it takes hold, it refuses to let go. Successfully fusing a spy thriller and supernatural adventure is not easy, not without losing key elements that make both genres so entertaining, but Blake Northcott delivers in full, face-melting force, all while building an immersive world that you will not want to leave. She has a real winner on her hands!"
- Cullen Bunn (NYT bestselling author of The 6th Gun, X-Men Blue, and Deadpool)
"A razor sharp page-turner that seamlessly blends two worlds--a late 90s teen horror film, and a cat-and-mouse spy thriller where magic is a weapon. It's electric, and I've never read anything like it."
- Rees Jones (co-author of Royals, with the world's #1 selling author, James Patterson)
"Engaging, relevant and poignant! A deft combination of ancient magic and modern mayhem!"
- Dan Panosian (Spawn, Thor, Captain America)
“The North Valley Grimoire is like the tight flashlight beam preceding you into a basement where you’re sure you heard something loud and wrong but you can’t help but explore, no matter what awaits.”
- Adam Hughes (Wonder Woman, Catwoman)
"Blake Northcott is one of the bright and shining stars of comics and literature. Her stories are told in unique and interesting perceptive, and are wholly entertaining."
- Frank Cho (Hulk, Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy)
"Horror has a compelling, new protagonist in Calista Scott, and a powerful, new voice in author Blake Northcott. Read this book...but do it with the lights on."
- Bryan Edward Hill (Writer at DC's Detective Comics, Hollywood scriptwriter of Ash vs. The Evil Dead) and Titans on the DC Universe steaming channel.
