Synopsis

Diabolical by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Prepare for a hell of a ride as Cynthia Leitich Smith calls on characters from her previous novels - and conjures up new ones - for a climactic showdown. When slipped angel Zachary and his werewolf pal Kieren are summoned under suspicious circumstances to a mysterious New England boarding school, they quickly find themselves in a hellish lock-down with an intriguing assortment of secretive, hand-picked students . Plagued by demon dogs, hallucinatory wall decor, a sadistic instructor and a legendary fire-breathing monster, will they somehow manage to escape? Or will the devil have his due? Best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites heroes from the previous three novels in the Tantalize series - including Zachary's girl, Miranda, and Kieren's love, Quincie - along with a fascinating cast of all-new characters for a suspenseful, action-packed clash between the forces of heaven and hell. Paranormal romance is hot, and Cynthia is a NYT best-selling author with an established teen following. Vampires, werewolves, romance, action, humour - fans of the three previous series titles will be thirsty for this final installment. A natural for Halloween displays/tables.
