Waterstones Says

Vampiric estate agents, death's godson and a demonic personal trainer all abound in this witty and page-turning urban fantasy from the author of the bestselling The Atlas Six.

From the No. 1 internationally bestselling author of The Atlas Six, Masters of Death is a queer, page-turning fantasy bursting with Olivie Blake’s signature sharp wit, stunning prose and unforgettable characters.

This book is about an estate agent. Only she’s a vampire, the house on sale is haunted, and its ghost was murdered.

When Viola Marek hires Fox D’Mora to deal with a ghost-infested mansion, she expects a competent medium. But unbeknownst to Viola, Fox is not a medium at all. He’s a fraud – and the godson of Death.

As the mystery of the mansion unfolds, Viola and Fox are drawn into an unlikely quest that neither wants nor expects. They’ll need the help of a demonic personal trainer, a steadfast reaper, and an angel with her own secrets. It transpires that an inconvenient dead body and a lost love are intrinsically linked. Can this coalition of unwilling allies solve this conundrum and un-haunt a house – by winning a devious immortal game?

This edition features beautiful interior illustrations from Little Chmura.

MEDIA REVIEWS

If you enjoyed Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens, you will adore this book - Starburst Magazine

With a high-stakes game risking eternal oblivion, dialogue that crackles like an old-school Hollywood comedy, and a mystery to solve, Blake dazzles yet again. A winner - Daily Mail

A meditation on romance and mortality, with the most satisfying ending imaginable - SFX

As much a delicious contest of wit, will, and passion as it is of magic, this book is half mystery, half puzzle and wholly a delight - Holly Black, author of The Cruel Prince on The Atlas Six

Lethally smart. Filled with a cast of brilliantly realized characters, each entangled with one another in torturously delicious ways, The Atlas Six will grip you by the throat and refuse to let go. Olivie Blake is a mind-blowing talent - Chloe Gong, author of These Violent Delights on The Atlas Six

The Atlas Six will thrill those who love twisted plots, twisted relationships and morally grey characters ready to kill for knowledge and power. Dark, ambitious and engaging - H. G. Parry, author of The Magician's Daughter on The Atlas Six

“For people who wonder what happens after...”

Masters of Death is one of those stories that can't be followed without any effort - it's an intentional venture as we are dealing here with characters from outside the human spectrum, specifically with... More

“Impeccable storytelling”

Masters of Death is a phenomenally brilliant book. Would I say it is one of the best things I have read for a long time? Absolutely yes. Would I say that this is possibly one of the best books I've ever read?... More
