In this emotional and action-packed sequel to the critically acclaimed THE DEVIL'S INTERN, Team DEVIL reunites and takes readers on another journey to the land of the living—this time, to stop a madman from unleashing the terror of The Devil's most prized possession, his dreamcatcher.
Medusa Pallister is about to interview for the most important job of her existence: an internship in Hell's accounting office. If she gets it, she'll report to Septimus, the coolest boss in the underworld. But the job will also mean working with Septimus's other intern, Mitchell Johnson.
Medusa has a history with Mitchell. The only trouble is, she can't remember what that history is. All she knows is that she saw him and two other devils outside her house while she was still alive. When Medusa is united with Team DEVIL, she thinks she'll finally get some answers. But the teens soon have bigger problems to face when an Unspeakable escapes from Hell with The Devil's dreamcatcher. In the wrong hands, this repository for all The Devil’s most horrific thoughts could be wielded as the worst weapon the realms of the living and dead have ever seen. To prevent this disaster, Medusa must find the courage to come to terms with her dual pasts, lead Team DEVIL and a counterpart team of unruly angels from Up There into horrifying danger, and face down The Devil himself in a surprising twist that no one, not even The Devil, could have foreseen.

- What inspires your writing? The environment more than anything. I have a strong imagination and can see magic hidden away around us. I daydream so much on public transport I often miss my stop!
- What is your favorite thing about being an writer? Writing is my creative outlet. I’m not sporty - although I love to watch it; I don’t cook - my family would starve to death if my husband didn’t cook!; and I’m left—handed so I’m more likely to maim myself with tools than make something; but I can write, and I think I’m pretty good at it. I’ve never had writer’s block. It’s fun. I’d be lost without it.
- What is the toughest part of being an writer? Rejection. It’s guaranteed, regardless of where you are in the process. Universal love doesn’t exist. It’d be nice though!
- If you could not be writer, what would you do/be? I’d like to be a tour guide in the Louvre.
- What would the story of your life be entitled? “She Came, She Saw, She Ate Her Body Weight in Chocolate!”
- What is your favorite book of all time? This changes yearly, but as of this moment I would say THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater.
- Which character from ANY book are you most like? I’d like to think I’m a bit like Hermione Granger. I’m a big believer in the power of books, learning and I’m a loyal friend.
- What character from all of your books are you most like? I guess I’m a little like Medusa from the Devil’s series. I’m self-sufficient, guarded, and I like my Converse sneakers!
- Which book would you love to take a weekend vacation inside of? THE RAVEN BOYS, but I want Gansey and Ronan with me the whole time!
- What do you want to be remembered for 100 years from now? As a writer who made people think as well as laugh.
- What is your favorite season? Spring. I’m not a winter person at all. I love the colors of spring. It’s a season for renewal.
- What inspired your book cover(s)? Or what is your favorite book cover and why? I’ve been really lucky with book covers because I love colour, and that’s what I’ve been given with every release so far. From my Camelot books, I love the cover of THE RING OF MORGANA because it’s just so pretty. With my Devil’s novels, THE DEVIL’S INTERN is my favourite because that block of vivid red just stands out a mile away on a bookshelf.
- Tell me something funny that happened while on a book tour or while promoting your book. Last November I took a trip to New York. I currently live in Australia and was jet lagged to Hell and back as I had travelled via the UK. Within an hour of arriving in New York I was having lunch with my amazing agent Beth, and my equally amazing editor Kelly. I was told THE DEVIL’S INTERN had been made a Kirkus Reviews Teen Book of 2014, then I met my publishing team, signed a ton of books, met people from Kirkus and School Library Journal, and was then taken to The Plaza for cocktails! I became so overwhelmed I started hyperventilating in the toilets of The Plaza! This was my first time by myself in New York and I ended up walking from Central Park to Times Square, grinning insanely at everyone I passed on the way. I can’t even remember the route I took. I just remember thinking “This is it. The moment I have worked years for.” Everyone else must have thought I was a total idiot!
- Are you working on something new? Always!
