Author(s): Tatum Flynn
Jinx D'Evil is Lucifer's youngest son, so he ought to be a terrifying demon...but he's rubbish at flying and not much good at scaring people. He's so innately good that he even turns the likes of Al Capone and Dracula away from a life of crime, instead of learning from their wickedness. It's not Jinx's fault, but Lucifer has had enough - and you don't want to get on the wrong side of a furious, eight foot tall, fiery Prince of Darkness. Faced with being packed off to the demon military academy, Jinx runs away - but when he gets to know a human girl, Tommy, who's ended up in Hell after accidentally killing her horrible uncle, Jinx realises there's serious trouble brewing in the underworld. Now Hell's hopes of survival rest on its most feeble demon - and a human girl who shouldn't have gone to Hell at all...Perfect for fans of David Walliams, this brilliantly funny adventure introduces a great new voice in children's fiction.
Welcome to Hell...you're going to love it here!
