The Demon Left Behind

"I’m a demon. My name is Melusine. My comrades are Bashemath, who is female like myself, and Geminian, who is male. And just in case you were wondering, we didn’t come from hell—if such a place exists at all...”

As the global crisis develops in the Twenty-First Century, a group of special “demon” researchers are sent from a parallel universe to embody themselves as humans and study the situation. However, in the midst of the operation, Wye-Wye, the youngest member of their team, is lost.

As she and her comrades do everything demonly possible to find him, Melusine, the team lead, is forced to do the unthinkable—employ the assistance of a “visie” (demon slang for human)—freelance journalist Paige Ballantyne.

Paige, however, gives Melusine much more to consider than just the mystery at hand as she becomes intrigued by the benefits of a “visie” life.

Together, the team must race the clock to find and bring back Wye-Wye before he can no longer regenerate. In an all-out cross-continent search, the team turns up much more than they bargained for in this urban fantasy mystery adventure.

Praise for Marie Jakober’s writing:

"This is a gem of a book. It is an easy to read love story, and a search-for-missing-person story, with just enough weird in it. This is recommended for everyone, even those who think that they wonít like fantasy or paranormal books." - Paul Lappen, reviewer

“The Demon Left Behind evokes in readers a sense of estrangement from the human experience, an othering of our own lives so that we can look at ourselves from an outside perspective and wonder at the strange things that occur in our world that we donít question Ė that we normalise.” — Derek Newman-Stille, Speculating Canada

“All in all, The Demon Left Behind is an intellectually & emotionally provocative fantasy for the all too irrational present.” — Eclectic Ruckus

“Jakober writes some beautiful material on the nature of existence.” — Rhian Bowley, The British Fantasy Society

“The Demon Left Behind is a fantasy tale combining mystery and adventure and the problems of inter-species romance meeting up with hard-core beliefs, on both sides. The narrator of the story is the demon team leader Melusine, Mela, for short, who tells the story from her point of view. ” — Ronald Hore, Manitoba Library Association
