Description
Loyalty leads to catastrophe in the thrilling and suspenseful conclusion to the Demon's Lexicon trilogy.
The Goblin Market has always been the center of Sin's world. She's a dancer and a performer, secure in her place. But now the Market is at war with the magicians, and Sin's place is in danger. Exiled from the market she loves, Sin is thrown together with Nick and Alan--whom she's always despised.
Alan has been marked by a magician and can be tortured as the magician pleases. As Sin watches Alan struggle to continue to protect the demon brother he loves, she begins to see him in a new light. When Alan is finally possessed as a punishment for Nick's disobedience, Sin can only watch helplessly as the boy she has grown to love is destroyed. No one ever comes back from a possession--ever. But no one else has a demon for a brother. How far will Nick go to save Alan? And what will it cost them all?


About the Author
Sarah Rees Brennan was born and raised in Ireland by the sea, where her teachers valiantly tried to make her fluent in Irish (she wants you to know it's not called Gaelic), but she chose to read books under her desk in class instead. After living briefly in New York and doing a creative writing MA and library work in Surrey, England, she has returned to Dublin, Ireland, to write. Her Irish is still woeful, but she feels the books under the desk were worth it. Visit her online at SarahReesBrennan.com.
