From the author of Fury, The Devil's Engine: Hellwalkers concludes an explosive trilogy about the secret battle for control of an all-powerful ancient machine which can grant you anything you wish for, in exchange for your soul.

In the third and final book of Alexander Gordon Smith's Devil's Engine series, Marlow and Pan are in hell. Literally in hell. Faced with the awful truth of being trapped in the underworld for an eternity-of Pan being trapped-Marlow makes a final deal with the Devil, a deal to go home. But he should have known: there is no real escape from a fight with the ultimate enemy. And when all hell breaks loose, it will be a war to end all wars-with demonic creatures spilling into the streets, monsters emerging from the shadows. Only the Hellraisers stand in their way, and they're not sure this is a battle they can win. They have no powers, they have no weapons. But they have each other, and they have hope, and they know how to kick ass.

Alexander Gordon Smith lives in Norwich, England. "The Stephen King of YA horror," he is the author of The Fury, The Inventors, the Escape from Furnace series, which has sold nearly half-a-million copies, and the Devil's Engine series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic (And Icky) Finale This was exactly the kind of epic, action-packed, gross finale I was hoping for. Basically, the action started from page one and didn't stop until the very final, very short chapter. But that's one thing I always liked about the trilogy! I gotta start off by saying that the gross factor was through the roof. I'm used to the creepy and disturbing scenes that Smith creates, but there were more than a couple scenes where I actually shuddered. Seriously, I know they deal with demons and hell and messed up monsters but... ew. Anyway, the writing was solid and the characters were great. Pan was of course my favourite, since she always faced danger and took nothing from no one, though I have to admit a twist regarding Marlow was definitely surprising. So much so that I wish the book were a little longer and had taken more time to analyze both the situations and the results. But that's just nitpicking. This was a truly unique horror trilogy filled with traumatizing descriptions and Hollywood blockbuster action and adventure. If you're a fan of horror novels with demons as the primary antagonist, and really want some creepiness to keep you up at night, this is the book for you!

Editorial Reviews

The Devil's Engine: Hellfighters"Adventure fans will be thrilled by the fast-paced, wall-to-wall action, and horror readers will delight at the supernatural terror and gore in the Engineers' battle against chaos and pure evil." -Booklist"Smith takes readers on another twisted, twisting journey and-to paraphrase the narrative-leaves readers with 'images that belong in the sickest of horror movies.' . . . This brings the same fear, fire, and comic relief as its predecessor, and readers will be happy enough with this sequel to the first Faustian tale to look forward to the next one." -Kirkus ReviewsThe Devil's Engine: Hellraisers"A YA horror knockout full of nonstop action, populated by broken but beautiful characters, and blisteringly scary." -Emmy Laybourne, author of Sweet and the Monument 14 series"This Faustian tale is a hit for horror fans looking for a world of mystery, the macabre, and lots of fire and fighting." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review"Immediately immerses readers into a fast-paced, action-packed, epic good-versus-evil story." -The Bulletin"An epic conflict between good and evil . . . Full of dark imagery and unsettling descriptions as unstoppable demons face off against superpowered teens." -Publishers Weekly
