Description

We have a list too and your name is on it. . . Ben Harvester and Becky Sanborne are clocking off after a normal shift at the Ministry of Pandemonium, guiding the souls of the newly-dead to the afterlife. But the enemy are still smarting after their catastrophic defeat at Halloween and are keen for revenge. A freak tornado that destroys Becky's house is only the start. When thirteen souls are stolen following a bomb explosion on Bad Saturday, the Ministry staff know that it heralds an all-out war with the Lords of Sundown. But little does Ben suspect how far their influence spreads. Who is the mysterious whisperer at his school? And why does Ben feel so uneasy about his mother's new boyfriend? The brilliant follow-up to the highly acclaimed Ministry of Pandemonium by Chris Westwood takes readers on a thrilling journey through the streets of London and to the gates of Abhorra. Fantastically gripping until the very last page.

The second in the much praised Ministry of Pandemonium series and fans will not be disappointed. This is another involving and intelligent piece of modern gothic, well written, thought-provoking and genuinely chilling... Book 3 can't come soon enough!

About Chris Westwood

Chris Westwood was born in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, the son of a coal miner and a school teacher. His first published writing was for the London music paper Record Mirror, where he worked as a staff reporter for three years.



His first children's book, A Light In The Black, was a runner-up for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. His second, Calling All Monsters, was optioned for film three times by Steven Spielberg. After a break from writing, spending seven years caring full-time for his father, Chris returned with Ministry of Pandemonium, the first in a series of novels set in a secret, alternative London.



He now lives part of the time in East London, and the rest of the time in a world of his own.
