Solaris Books has acquired PANDAEMONIUM, the second volume of an urban fantasy series from pseudonymous author ‘Ben Macallan’.
The title will be the first sequel to Desdaemona, published last month by Solaris, and is due for publication late in 2012.
In Desdaemona – Macallan’s terrifying, sexy, sinister urban fantasy debut – Jordan may look like a teenager but he treads the line between mundane reality and the supernatural in a world where vampires don’t glitter and runaways don’t just disappear – they’re hunted.
Macallan is not only a pseudonym of award-winning crime and thriller writer Chaz Brenchley, but has also appeared as a character in his books, Dead of Light and Light Errant.
The agent was John Jarrold, and the deal is for Worldwide English Rights.
Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Solaris, said:
“It's a delight to be working with Ben again. He had such a strong debut with Desdaemona and has proved that he is a fresh new voice in urban fantasy.”
