Three hundred years ago, fate bound Prosper Redding and Prince Alastor of the Third Realm together. Now the human boy and fiend heir to the demon kingdom must put aside a centuries-old blood feud to save everything they love.
Alastor will guide Prosper through the demon realm-under one huge condition: Prosper must enter into a contract with the malefactor residing in him, promising eternal servitude in the afterlife. With Prosper's sister in the clutches of the evil queen Pyra, Prosper has no choice but to agree.
But when they arrive in Alastor's deliciously demonic home, the realm is almost as alien to Alastor as it is to Prosper-the lowest fiends have dethroned the ruling malefactors, while an unfathomable force called the Void is swiftly consuming the realm. The desperate fiends cling to the one person who says she can stop it: Pyra.
As Prosper embarks on a perilous rescue mission to the Tower of No Return, he can't help but feel for the demons losing their home-even Alastor, who lives by a set of rules that have vanished in a new world.
With the fates of humans and demons at odds, the battle lines are drawn. Long ago, Prosper's ancestor Honor Redding proved that humans and demons could never be friends. But is Prosper like his ancestor? And is Alastor the same demon who was betrayed by the one human he cared for?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I absolutely loved this book. I loved how Prosper wanted to do everything to save his sister, and I'm not 100% sure why but I absolutely loved Prince Alastor. In this book, readers learn more about what happened between the Redding's and the Bellegrave's, and it's such an interesting backstory. There are also flashbacks that are well placed, clearly defined, and really enrich the story. I'm hoping there's going to be another book.
Our young adult patrons have read books by Alexandria Bracken before and were curious about this book. I received this book as an advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest review and all I have to say , what if the Loch Ness monster was in Lord of the Rings and is best friends with a young prince? The story focuses on Prosper Redding and Prince Alistor bound.to each other three hundred years ago to save the realm.they love from the evil.queen Pyra. Ours has cursed the kingdom pro!using the fellow demons under Prosper that she can save them and they join alongside her. It's up to Prosper and Alistor to travel to the Tower of No Return and coexist with one another in order to save their realm and eachother.
