Mythological fantasy thriller for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be gripped by Hideki Smith: Demon Queller by A.J. Hartley, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in January 2024.

We love the blend of contemporary teenage life, classic Japanese mythology and high octane drama in this highly original novel - perfect for fans of Percy Jackson."

As one of the few half-Japanese students in East Portersville High School, Caleb has accepted that he will never fit in. He’s not popular, can’t play football and the girl he likes doesn’t even know he exists. On one fateful day, Caleb and his sister Emily stumble upon a Shinto shrine deep in the Great Smoky Mountains: a shrine Caleb knows wasn’t there the day before. Faced with his unfamiliar heritage, Caleb quickly learns that fitting in was the least of his problems. Something is lurking in the caves of the mountains and it wants to get out...

A.J. Hartley is the author of young adult novels Cold Bath Street, Written Stone Lane and Impervious. He is also the author of the Monsters in the Mirror middle grade series. A.J. was born in northern England, but has lived in many places including Japan, and was the Robinson Professor of Shakespeare studies at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from A.J. Hartley. There’s also a word puzzle to solve and a recipe for onigiri, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

Activity packs are a handy A5 size and printed on uncoated paper which is fully recyclable.
