We’ve teamed up with Disney Hyperion for a spellbinding new giveaway bound to excite Alexandra Bracken fans!

Thanks to the publisher, we snagged a complimentary copy of The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding (review coming soon!) and more importantly, they provided an amazing prize pack for one lucky fan!

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding follows the title character as a demon named Alastor comes to seek revenge on the Redding family, starting with Prosper himself. The boy may think he’s breaking the curse and avoiding eternal servitude without much issue, but hosting demons is a tricky game. The book marks Alexandra Bracken’s first foray into middle grade, looking dark, clever, and super fun.

“I would say it’s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness.”

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host.

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?

  1. Nearly Headless Nick from the Potter series is great. Beetlejuice is way too funny. The show Poltergeist was scary when I saw it as a kid

  2. @@Jodichristians3 on

    My favorite ghostly characters are the six dead sons in the book stardust by neil gaiman. My favorite demonic character is the demon inside the book mister b. Gone by Clive barker

  3. “Besides Alastor, who are your favorite demonic, ghostly, or ghoulish characters in literature?” Ooh, I want to think of a good one! Um, one of those terrifying angry djinns from the 1001 Tales From the Arabian Nights? Or how about all those creepy demons on the show “Supernatural”?–that show is stuffed with good ones!
