I know it's ridiculous. Lights can't whisper. But I swear I heard a voice calling to me. It sounded like static to begin with, but then it came into focus, a single word repeated over and over. Softly, slyly, seductively, insistently.
The Disciples are being manipulated by beings older than time. Only Kernel Fleck knows that something is wrong. But he is in the grip of a creature who cares nothing for the fate of humanity. Voices are calling to him from the darkness and he's powerless to resist.
Kernel has already been to hell and back. Now he's about to go further.
"Sure to make the stomach heave. Shan gives masters like Poe and King a run for their money with unexpected plot twists and vile descriptions that surpass the gross and rival the grisly."
"Older fans of Shan's gory, gripping Cirque Du Freak series will welcome... the Demonata series, which features the same horrific spin, dark humor, and graphic detail."
