Ingrid Selberg, Publishing Director, comments "Sarah Rees Brennan is an amazing new talent and we are thrilled to add her to our list of stunning d�but authors. The Demon's Lexicon is a compelling tale, full of mystery, passion and danger, set in the dark shadows of contemporary London. Fans of Stephanie Meyer, Holly Black and Cassandra Clare will welcome this new voice."
