"It appears as though every task Tiamat is ordered to carry out tears at his soul; but how can I know if that’s true? How can I trust him, if he’s the very one who destroyed this planet in the first place?"
Tiamat and his brothers, a legion of one hundred half-angels, have orders to send all humans on to their final judgment. Yet in a moment of weakness, Tiamat risks his life to rescue a hiker named Kali from the very destruction he initiated.
Kali, thrust from the surety of her world into the boundless hell of Tiamat’s, must try to find a way to survive in the Earth’s vast, devastated landscape. Plagued by a legion of Nephilim bent on sending her on, she is forced to trust the one being who could prove to be her greatest enemy.
Nevins creates a world that is as vivid as it is frightening, and she peoples it with beings who are complex and terrifying. Beautifully written and darkly portrayed, Wormwood is filled with indelible characters with monumental choices to make. A thinking person’s paranormal dystopian and a complex love story, Wormwood could be one of the most exciting reads of the year.
