Shortlisted for the 2013 Scottish Children’s Book Award The second in the Afterwolds series, this is a cracking adventure which keeps up a terrific pace to the last. The Book of Doom has gone missing! As it is the most important object in existence there are some very red faces indeed. Could Satan have stolen it? If so, how on earth will they ever get it back? It’s not a job for those in heaven. But what about a human? Clever Gabriel comes up with the perfect plan. Selecting fifteen year old Zac to do the job of fetching it and giving him Angelo as a guide seems like a great idea but will they find the way to Hell? And can they bring the book back?

Synopsis

Afterworlds: The Book of Doom by Barry Hutchison

There's panic up in Heaven. They have mislaid the BOOK OF DOOM - the most important object in existence. Oopsy. They think Satan might have stolen it, the sneaky little devil, so to save the world - plus, you know, quite a lot of embarrassment, fifteen year old Zac and his angelic guide Angelo are sent to retrieve it. Sadly directions aren't Angelo's strong point and they soon find themselves just as lost as the book, wandering through Afterworlds such as Valhalla and Hades and encountering some colourful characters along the way...Can the hapless pair make it to Hell and back?

Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE THIRTEENTH HORSEMAN:

Hutchison's work is not only hilarious; it contains a high degree of wit and intelligence. He delights not only in the apparent endless idiocy of humankind, but in the describing of it. This delight is infectious, his ability impressive. - Books for Keeps
