About the Book

“I would say it’s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness….”

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history—that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made—and then broke—a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, eight-hundred-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose–to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts to trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his afterlife without a side of eternal servitude, thanks. But with the help of his long-lost uncle, Barnabas, and his daughter, Nell, a witch-in-training, it seems like Prosper has at least a fighting chance of ridding himself of Alastor before the demon escapes and wreaks havoc on his family.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host…

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?

  1. This sounds like a book that my oldest would like to read. I am always interested in finding new books for them to read.

  2. I just hate trying to answer that question, its like whos my favorite child. I love the Anne of Green Gables series, books by Janet Evanovich, books by Dick Francis, the MacGregor series by Nora Roberts etc.. I got lots of favorites lol

  3. That’s really interesting! I wonder if my 11 year old will like this book, it sounds like it’s very engaging. I’d love to show this to the kids and check if they’d love to read it!

  4. What a fantastic giveaway! I don’t know if I could pick a favourite book! Probably a mix between eat, pray, love and all of the harry potters! The modern classics

  5. My daughter was a HUGE fan of reading and especially enjoyed magical stories. She devoured the Harry Potter series by the time she was 10. I, myself, have always loved book fairs, and strongly encourage reading for people of all ages.

  6. I think my favourite book of all time is “the power of your subconscious mind”. Everytime life gets hard I read it and everything falls into place.

  7. Since I have so many favorite books, I will give my favorite one from this summer. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. Coming in a close second is The Witch’s Boy by Kelly Barnhill. So many good books to read. :)
