"If you’re looking for a sassy, hard-boiled thriller with a paranormal slant,
Wendig has established himself as the go-to man.” – The Guardian
“Chuck Wendig has raised the bar of the urban fantasy genre” – New York Journal of Books on Blackbirds
The master of in-your-face visceral horror, Chuck Wendig, returns to Abaddon Books with a brand new title and a brand new world that is not to be missed – Gods and Monsters: Unclean Spirits!
The gods and goddesses are real. A many-headed pantheon—a tangle of divine hierarchies—once kept the world at arm’s length, warring with one another for mankind’s belief and devotion. It was a grim and bloody balance, but a balance just the same. When one god triumphed, driving all other gods out of Heaven, it was back to the bad old days: cults and sycophants, and the terrible retribution the gods visit on those who spite them.
Five years ago, it all went wrong for Cason Cole. He lost his wife and son, lost everything, and was bound into service to a man who chews up human lives and spits them out. Now, as the man he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, Cason is finally free. And no gods, demi-gods, acolyte, or monstrous abomination is going to stop him from getting back what’s his...
Wendig is a massive talent with a huge online following and Gods and Monsters is a brand new world he has created for Abaddon Books. Pat Kelleher is to continue the series with the e-title Gods and Monsters: Drag Hunt, which will launch online on the same day as Unclean Spirits.
