“Far and away one of the best young adult supernatural fantasy novels released in the last few years…. [Pan is] exactly the kind of teen heroine that readers should be standing up and cheering for.”
“A big-style cinematic vampire and monster hunter shoot-‘em-up with a very human, sweet kid caught in the crossfire… but her relationship with her parents and close friends makes the story gold.”
The thrilling debut of a dark urban-fantasy novel series by the bestselling author of X-Men: The Chaos Engine Trilogy!
Pandora Zwieback is a 16-year-old Goth girl who’s just discovered that her New York City hometown is the stalking ground for every creature of the night out to raise a little hell (literally!). Problem is, she thinks she’s the only one who can see them, which means she can’t tell her friends or family about the dangers around them—not unless she wants to spend the rest of her life locked up in a psychiatric ward.
But before Pan has a chance to make sense of her increasingly weird life, she finds herself in the middle of a war among rival vampire clans! Elegant Gothic Lolitas from Japan on one side, silk-suited London vamps on the other, leather-clad hunters from Europe in the middle, and all after the same prize: a mysterious crate recently delivered to the horror-themed museum owned by Pan’s dad. What is its terrifying secret—and will Pan survive long enough to find out?
