From S.T. Gibson the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Dowry of Blood comes a brand new fantasy addiction full to the brim with secret societies, lust and lies with Evocation and not only are we excited to bring you the cover (above) but we’re also giving you the first chapter to read right here at SciFiNow! Oh, we’re good to you lot aren’t we!
First, check out the official synopsis for Evocation…
The day David Aristarkhov’s occultist father died, he bought himself an Audi, drank every drop of liquor in the house, and abandoned his life as a teen psychic prodigy. Now pushing thirty, David is a Boston attorney, moonlighting as a medium for a secret society.
But when the Devil comes to collect on a deal David’s ancestor made, he reluctantly reaches out to his ex-boyfriend Rhys for help. However, to get to Rhys, David will have to befriend Moira, Rhys’s wife. The trio gets a little too close for comfort as they combine their powers to unravel the century-old curse, and if they don’t break it by David’s thirtieth birthday, he won’t live long enough for everyone to figure out their feelings for each other.
We still have to wait until next year before we get to truly meet David, Rhys, Moira, and Leda as they navigate magic-riddled Boston through hierarchical secret societies, familial bonds from beyond the grave. However, we just can’t wait until then so – crafting a little magic of our own – we have conjured up Chapter One of the novel right here!
