A novel by

 
 
Set in Colonial New England, Slewfoot is a tale of magic and mystery, of triumph and terror as only dark fantasist Brom can tell it.

Connecticut, 1666: An ancient spirit awakens in a dark wood. The wildfolk call him Father, slayer, protector.

The colonists call him Slewfoot, demon, devil.

To Abitha, a recently widowed outcast, alone and vulnerable in her pious village, he is the only one she can turn to for help.

Together, they ignite a battle between pagan and Puritan – one that threatens to destroy the entire village, leaving nothing but ashes and bloodshed in their wake.

This terrifying tale of bewitchery features more than two dozen of Brom’s haunting full-color paintings and brilliant endpapers, fully immersing readers in this wild and unforgiving world.

Praise for this book

"A fast-paced, hallucinogenic fairy tale...delivering likable protagonists, exotic beasties, and scoundrels whom we long to see at table with their just desserts." - Christopher Buehlman

"Brom has made a convert out of me with Slewfoot, which takes hold of the maxim 'sympathy for the devil' and yanks hard on that literary taproot, unearthing a far more elemental and complex truth. Demon or no, evil or not, the mighty stag Slewfoot deserves our love and devotion. He's got mine now. All hail Brom, all hail Slewfoot!" - Clay McLeod Chapman

"I loved this book. A roaring, bloody, beautiful work of pure imagination." - Andy Davidson

"Which is worse? The Devil of the forest or the terror of Puritan village rumors, accusations, and lies? At the crossroads of victimhood and vengeance, Abitha makes her choice--and blood follows." - Richard Kadrey
