In Diabolical, the most recent fantasy novel from Choctaw author Cynthia Leitich Smith characters from her previous novels and new ones appear for a climactic showdown. When "slipped" angel Zachary and his werewolf pal, Kieren, arrive under suspicious circumstances to the mysterious New England boarding school, Scholomance Academy, they quickly find themselves in a hellish lockdown with an intriguing assortment of secretive, hand-picked students. Plagued by demon dogs, hallucinatory wall decor, a sadistic instructor, and a legendary fire-breathing monster, will they somehow manage to escape? Or will the devil have his due? Best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites heroes from the previous three novels in the Tantalize Series - including Zachary's girl, Miranda, and Kieren's love, Quincie - along with a fascinating cast of all-new characters for a suspenseful, action-packed clash between the forces of heaven and hell. Told from the alternating points of view of the four main characters, this action story combines, romance, suspense, and a good dose of dry humour into a spell-binding mix. A fine closure to this series from an accomplished storyteller. ATOS Reading Level: 4.6.
