Sandman Slim must save himself—and the entire world—from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods in this sixth high-octane adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.

Being a half-human, half-angel nephilim with a bad rep and a worse attitude—not to mention temporarily playing Lucifer—James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, has made a few enemies. None, though, are as fearsome as the vindictive Angra Om Ya—the old gods. But their imminent invasion is only one of Stark’s problems right now. Los Angeles is descending into chaos, and a new evil—the Wildfire Ripper—is stalking the city.

No ordinary killer, the Ripper takes Stark deep into a conspiracy that stretches from Earth to Heaven and Hell. He’s also the only person alive who may know how to keep the world from going extinct. The trouble is, he’s also Stark’s worst enemy … the only man in existence Stark would enjoy killing twice.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Followers of Kadrey’s Sandman Slim series will savor the sixth installment, which is chock-full of James Stark’s biting humor and all the familiar faces fans have grown to love. Stark continues to evolve as a character, righting wrongs from his past and investing further in his relationship with girlfriend Candy.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Kadrey delivers another slamming urban fantasy adventure in James ‘Sandman Slim’ Stark’s sixth foray…This novel is wall-to-wall action, and Stark careens from mayhem to chaos, doing battle with the recently deceased and those who can never die…Under all the shock and gore, the heart of Sandman Slim still beats to its own delightfully unpredictable pace.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This series has kept its energy well, even six volumes in, partially owing to the stubborn character of Stark. He doesn't evolve, per se; he’s still a rude and violent walking weapon, but he never makes the same mistake twice. Using humor to leaven the tumult, Kadrey shows that there are plenty of stories left to tell in Stark’s world.”

    Library Journal

  • “Richard Kadrey continues to knock them way the hell out of the park.”

    Cory Doctorow, praise for the author

  • “The series is part fantasy, part gothic horror, part crime noir. It’s filled with knowing winks about pop culture and told at a breathless pace that can’t be bothered with actual chapters.”

    San Diego Union-Tribune, praise for the series
