James Salley is turning sixteen, and it’s not going well. His family’s too busy to care, the local bully creates new tortures daily, someone appears to be following him, and he’s just learned that he’s the Antichrist. All James ever wanted out of life was for Dorian Delaney—the operatically trained and suicidal girl of his dreams—to fall as in love with him as he is with her. But once he’s told of his bloody destiny, he finds himself fighting between who he thought he was and who he’s supposed to be. With the school librarian pushing him to begin the Apocalypse, an irritable homunculus watching his back, and a murderous cabal of Catholics following him everywhere, James must discover how to navigate a world in which everything he’s ever believed is wrong—and if it’s possible to be the hero of a story when you’ve already been cast as the villain.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As James waffles between his conflicting desires to just be a regular kid and to make all who made him miserable pay, readers will probably be able to figure out what choice he will eventually make, but a last-minute twist on James’ dilemma is the cherry on top of this absurdly funny and affecting novel. A wickedly funny examination of what it means to choose your own destiny.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A funny tale about fate and the choices we make.” BOOKish, one of “Summer 2016’s Must-Read Young Adult Sci-Fi & Fantasy”
“Jordan blends realistic fiction with humor, fantasy, and an epic adventure quest of destiny.” School Library Journal
“James has to find a way to take control of his own life…[in this] mashup of high school drama and high concept fantasy.” Publishers Weekly
“A slow starting but humorous tale for readers looking for something unconventional.” VOYA
“Twisting standard mythology and familiar religious tropes, Jesse Jordan has penned a compelling novel, filled with tension, humor, and dark destinies fulfilled.” Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration
