Embark on an exciting Christmas adventure with A HINT OF HELL. He's just failed at being evil... Kieron Lascher thought his life as a minor demon lord in Hell couldn't get any worse, but when he fails his exams and is sent into another realm as punishment by his parents, he realises that there are worse places than Hell. With deadly beasts and evil Satan Claws roaming the frosty land, Kieron has to fight to survive. With the help of a banished succubus, he learns that he needs to find the missing codex to gain some power. If he manages to take out Satan Claws and learn pure evil, he might be able to open a portal and go back home. But first, he has to master being truly evil to some cute little elves. That won't be difficult for a demon lord, right? “Wildly, bizarrely, brain-punchingly inventive!” – Derek Landy, bestselling author of Skulduggery Pleasant. DISCOVER THE DEMON DIARIES, WHICH HAS SPELLBOUND 2.5 MILLION READERS. WHAT READERS ARE SAYING “I love how Claire Chilton keeps your pulse racing until the end of the book. The addictive writing plus amusing characters and supernatural stories in these books create an unforgettable read.” ★★★★★ “If you are looking for an action-packed and funny gothic fiction series with a strong female lead to completely immerse yourself in, then this might be the book series for you.” ★★★★★ “The descriptions in this hilarious occult series are rich with meaning, and the parody of preternatural characters are brilliantly human.” ★★★★★ “I love Dora! Her sarcasm manages to amuse me whether she’s being tortured in the academy for demons in Hell or just arguing with the Fallen One in Heaven. Great world building, and the best and most sarcastic characters.” ★★★★★ “Claire Chilton not only conjures a YA fantasy world brimming with magical creatures like vampires, werewolves, zombies, angels, demons, succubus, dragons, elves, fae, fairies, ghosts, gods, shapeshifters and a whole range of mythical monsters, she also creates a few of her own. Were-squirrels, anyone?” ★★★★★ “If you’re looking for a dark teen comedy that is the goth lovechild of Deadpool and Buffy, then look no further. The novels in this series are fast-paced, dogma-driven, satires that focus on an outcast teenage girl who uses witty banter and a spellbook to become a witch and travel to Hell and back. With light humour and a lot of lols along the way, this Sabrina-like heroine explores the horror of death and darkness in even the most heavenly places.” ★★★★★ “An entertaining, humorous and romantic paranormal novel that kept me up past midnight because I couldn’t put it down.” ★★★★★ “When the demon lord you’re dating takes you home to meet his undead family, and then you’re forced to attend school in Hell, you know the romance is going to get a bit weird. This was a fun unearthly romp that will make you laugh out loud. The first story is a bit short, but it’s also free. The stories aren’t overly romantic, so they’re great for older teenage boys and girls.” ★★★★★ “Deliciously thrilling and wickedly silly from the grave and back! If you’re tired of depressed heroines, then enjoy this feisty female protagonist as she travels on the road to Hell with nothing but her spells, soul chips and wits to keep her alive.” ★★★★★ “A must-read series of sorcery, comedy, witches and demons. I can’t wait for more new releases in this series.” ★★★★★ BOOKS IN THIS SERIES A Hint of Magic: Bewitched by Magic Demonic Dora: Bewitched in Hell Deceased Dora: Bewitched in Death Divine Dora: Bewitched in Heaven A Hint of Hell: Bewitched by Christmas LANGUAGES: Available in British and American English.
