The Demon Collector by Jon Mayhew


The Demon Collector by Jon Mayhew

Edgy Taylor sees demons. They walk among us, masquerading as humans, but he can see through their disguises. So when Edgy discovers the Royal Society for Daemonologie, he hopes that at last he will find some clue to the origins of his mysterious ability. Within the Society's ancient walls are the answers to many secrets. And when Edgy joins their expedition to the Arctic Circle, he sails through icy seas towards the darkest secret of all . . .


Praise for The Demon Collector:

Mortlock was a striking debut . . . it created a creepy atmosphere that won much praise. The Demon Collector is equally full of well-written suspense but far funnier, with a strong filmic element that fans of Joseph Delaney's Spooks Apprentice and Anthony McGowan's Hellbent will lap up * Amanda Craig, The Times * Praise for Mortlock:

An accomplished page-turner . . . lighthanded, scary fun, with some sibling bickering thrown in * SFX * Mayhew has woven a rich tapestry depicting a series of convincing worlds . . . It has a breathtaking pace [and there] are characters we hope to meet again * Children's Book of the Month, The Observer *
