Title: The Devil’s Poetry

Author: Louise Cole

Release Date: 13th June 2017

Genre: YA Thriller

Questions are dangerous but answers can be deadly.
Callie’s world will be lost to war – unless she can unlock the magic of an ancient manuscript. She and her friends will be sent to the front line. Many of them won’t come back. When a secret order tells her she can bring peace by reading from a book, it seems an easy solution - too easy. Callie soon finds herself hunted, trapped between desperate allies and diabolical enemies. The Order is every bit as ruthless as the paranormal Cadaveri.

Callie can only trust two people – her best friend and her ex-marine bodyguard. And they are on different sides. She must decide: how far will she go to stop a war?

Dare she read this book? What’s the price - and who pays it?

Commended In the Yeovil Prize 2016, this is an action-packed blend of adventure, fantasy and love story.


When asked if I wanted to read this book, by the sounds of the synopsis alone I just couldn't refuse and I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. The book follows Callie she's 17 and the world she knows will be lost to war soon so when her and her friends go out to party to celebrate their last piece of freedom before being shipped off to war, she didn't know she could change all of that, with 1 book.

Soon enough she's in possession of a book that draws her in, a book forced upon her by a stranger who will become known as Jace, in a situation where she simply didn't have the time to refuse. She doesn't know it but she holds the power to save her friends from the oncoming war. This part of the story alone just made me want to read on and never stop.

At school the following day a new teaching assistant by the name of Mr Portman rings bells to Callie, she remembers him handing her the book and telling her to keep it safe, not to read it but just keep it safe but familiar face or not Callie feels vulnerable around him. Later that day Gavin and Amber who are Callies closest friends are walk home across the fields, Gavin leaves going his way home leaving the other 2 girls to carry on aross the Marchbanks' farm and that's when things truly kick off. Figures with white eyes come closer, backing Callie into the barn after Callie had made Amber run away because it was her they wanted, and all they want is the book that Callie doesn't have on her.

Everything pretty much kicks off at higher gears after that, I don't want to give away too much but Callie soon becomes involved with a group whom are the people who help stop the world going to hell (to be honest) There's a lot of nail biting moments and times where I've had to call out and do whale cries just because it was so great. It was a gripping book and I was simply unable to put it down. I have to admit I fell in love with Callie and Jace, it was an undeniable love between me and both of the characters, I didn't feel so attached to other characters but I felt emotions when they were involved.

Its hard to truly express how much I loved this book and I really cant wait to read more from Louise Cole, she has drawn me in and I simply cant back out. its an easy 5/5 from me, the book feels like a great book for anyone to read, its a perfect mix of suspence, action and love and friendship. I hope you'll check out the book and if you don't I hope you'll check out the other posts from the Blog Tour as the names of the blogs are below.
