Family's a hugely important thing for a lot of teens. But it does seem to get left out of YA.
In the Demon's Lexicon series I wanted to write books in which family is everything, and part of the adventure. Meet the Ryves brothers: Nick, furious, gorgeous and extremely good with a sword, and Alan, sweet, bookish, and a crack shot.
Nick and Alan are on the run because magicians are chasing their mother. Mae Crawford is looking for help because a demon marked her brother Jamie for death. And every family's got at least one dark secret...
The first book in the Demon's Lexicon series was one of the top ten ALA books of 2009 and received three starred reviews: I only hope you'll like both the first and the second, THE DEMON'S COVENANT.
