Pacific Rim Meets Fast and Furious.
Gary Gibson, author of the Shoal Sequence (Stealing Light, Nova War, Empire of Light, and Marauder), returns with a high-octane story that opens with a prison break and builds from there, setting woman against machine against monster.
Kaiju: a Japanese word meaning Ďstrange creatureí. In English, it has come to mean Ďgiant monsterí.
The Devilís Run: annual road race that circumnavigates the post-apocalyptic ruins of Teijouan, whose devastated cities teem with Kaiju.
Dutch McGuire: a notorious veteran of the Run, busted out of a high security prison to drive the race one final time.
Madame Muto: Once Dutchís closest friend, now her bitterest enemy; a crime lord who has sworn to see her dead.
The Rift: an enigma that stands at the heart of Teijouan, the gateway through which the Kaiju manifest on Earth.
Gary Gibson: an author who has mastered the art of writing stories with adrenaline switched up to the max.
Nobody has taken part in the Devilís Run as often as Dutch McGuire and lived to tell the tale. Faced with a choice between being eaten by the monstrous Kaiju that prowl the islandís devastated cities or murdered by her fellow racers, the odds against surviving another Run, let alone winning it, are slim. The odds donít concern Dutch, however; all she cares about is getting back behind the wheel of her beloved Ford Falcon, so when a crooked billionaire offers to put her back in the race on condition she uses it as cover for a secret retrieval operation, she canít refuse.
"Devilís Road is an apocalyptical heart-pounding ride that may leave you with a bit of road rash from all the twists and turns." - Paul's Picks
"With nods to Pacific Rim, Godzilla, Escape From New York, Mad Max, Death Race 2000 and a bunch of other action classics, Devilís Road was exactly the kind of Saturday afternoon movie adventuresome fun I was looking for." - Neil Williamson
