Devils Unto Dust

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
Ten years ago, a horrifying disease began spreading across the West Texas desert. Infected people - "shakes" - attacked the living and created havoc and destruction. No one has ever survived the infection.

Daisy Wilcox, known as Willie, has been protecting her siblings within the relatively safe walls of Glory, Texas. But when Willie's good-for-nothing father steals a fortune from one of the most dangerous shake-hunters in town, she finds herself on the hook for his debt. With two hunters, including the gruff and handsome Ben, to accompany her, she sets out across the desert in search of her father. But the desert is not kind to travelers, and not everyone will pass through alive.

Western meets horror for this riveting story about survival, family, and inner strength. High concept and character-driven, Emma Berquist's debut will satisfy fans of The Magnificent Seven, Rae Carson's Walk on Earth a Stranger, and HBO's Westworld.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Much like the undead Willie fights, once this story grabs you, it won’t let go. Prepare to be consumed." - Ryan Graudin

"A tale of survival as gritty as its desert setting. Stubbornness, strength and survival come head to head with blowing sands and creeping sickness in this feminist tale." - Mindy McGinnis
