Synopses & Reviews
James Salley is turning sixteen, and its not going well. His familys too busy to care, the local bully creates new tortures daily, someone appears to be following him, and hes just learned that hes the Antichrist.
All James ever wanted out of life was for Dorian Delaney the operatically trained and suicidal girl of his dreams to fall as in love with him as he is with her. But once hes told of his bloody destiny, he finds himself fighting between who he thought he was and who hes supposed to be.
With the school librarian pushing him to begin the Apocalypse, an irritable homunculus watching his back, and a murderous cabal of Catholics following him everywhere, James must discover how to navigate a world in which everything hes ever believed is wrong and if its possible to be the hero of a story when youve already been cast as the villain.
