Look Out For … Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist

Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist - cover “The Old West, a wicked virus scourging the land, and a young woman setting out across the desert plains to fight for what’s right … it has all the makings of a blockbuster hit everyone is going to be reading.”

Ten years after the Civil War and things are still bad in the West Texas town of Glory. A strange rabies-like virus has everyone either sick or on edge. The sick, called ‘shakes’, are mere shells of the humans they used to be, forcing the survivors to barricade the perimeters of the town to keep the shakes out.

Seventeen year old Willie has done her best to keep what left of her family safe. Now she not only has to worry about the trouble her father’s left her in, but she has to set our across the Texas desert to fix the mess, and there’s worse things out in the desert than shakes.

Why we’re excited about this book:

When a story comes around and people are already saying it’s like 28 Days Later meets True Grit, you can bet it is high on our radar. The Old West, a wicked virus scourging the land, and a young woman setting out across the desert plains to fight for what’s right … it has all the makings of a blockbuster hit everyone is going to be reading. Considering the film rights have already been snagged by Big Talk Pictures before the book is released, this is definitely a book that no one will want to miss. Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist releases from HarperCollins 10 April 2018, and is available for preorder over at Amazon.
