Part of the Books of Pandemonium Series

Books of Pandemonium: #1 Black Arts Synopsis

London is a teeming warren of thieves and cutthroats. Young Jack fits right in. But when he picks the wrong pocket, he finds himself in a London far more dangerous than he ever imagined. A metropolis of spies and dark magic. A city that will change him. A city where devils are real.

Books of Pandemonium: #1 Black Arts Press Reviews

'I really, really enjoyed it. I think it's a brilliant book, a great blend of action, adventure, magic, horror and humour. Plus the language is top notch ... A period book that will work very well for modern readers' Charlie Higson; 'Extremely impressive ... Black Arts is a complete, self-contained and wholly satisfying novel in its own right. This is a sparkling and intelligent debut' Philip Ardagh, Guardian; 'I thoroughly enjoyed Black Arts and have put my name straight down for the second in this Books of Pandemonium series. We know what we want from a fantasy adventure and that's action, characters we can love or love to hate, and as much swag as the pages can fit. And Black Arts gives us all these things with gusto.' Jill Murphy, BookBag; 'Prentice and Weil do know how to spin a thrilling yarn ... Devilishly good fun' Suzi Feay, Financial Times; 'Roistering and sweaty, full of magic and mischief is Black Arts by Prentice and Weil. The authors' use of contemporary slang is brilliant' Philip Womack, Literary Review
