“I know bad things are supposed to happen, and we’ve got a ways to go, but f*ck! I’ve never hated a book so! This. Is. Terrifying.”
– Jennifer Dinsmore
Think: The Breakfast Club crossed with The Exorcist…but the demon got loose.

Everyone has their demons. But Stinky Pete released his into the school, and now it’s out for blood.

It’s 1981, and in the town they call No Hope, Theo knows Pete is going through a tough time. God knows Theo’s been there himself. He offers a hand in friendship, an offer to get a few guys together for some poker, but something holds Pete back. He’s just acquired a Book, and this is the day Pete’s gonna make his father pay for all the shit Stinky Pete’s had to deal with…

With the help of the Book, Pete unleashes an monstrous, vile demon within the halls of Clarington High. In a matter of minutes, most of the students are dead or dying, the school has been moved to a sickening elsewhere, and Theo and his friends are thrown into the fight of—and for—their lives.

They have one chance to defeat the demon. One chance to get back home. One chance to save themselves. And it’s the biggest gamble of Theo’s life, but the deck is stacked against them.

The demon they call Swlabr is trying to find and break them for its own needs…

Their inner demons are fighting against them…

And the Book? Yeah, that damned Book has plans of Its own.

“I know bad things are supposed to happen, and we’ve got a ways to go, but f*ck! I’ve never hated a book so! This. Is. Terrifying.“– Jennifer Dinsmore, editor of The Aphotic series
