IN AMERICA, DEMONS WEAR WHITE HOODS.

In 1915, The Birth of a Nation cast a spell across America, swelling the Klan's ranks and drinking deep from the darkest thoughts of white folk. All across the nation they ride, spreading fear and violence among the vulnerable. They plan to bring Hell to Earth. But even Ku Kluxes can die.

Standing in their way is Maryse Boudreaux and her fellow resistance fighters, a foul-mouthed sharpshooter and a Harlem Hellfighter. Armed with blade, bullet, and bomb, they hunt their hunters and send the Klan's demons straight to Hell. But something awful's brewing in Macon, and the war on Hell is about to heat up.

Can Maryse stop the Klan before it ends the world?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This fantastical horror tale, set in early 1920s Georgia, has considerable resonance for the present-day United States. Maryse Boudreaux is a 25-year-old Black bootlegger who lost her family in a brutal Klan attack. She can see things that are hidden to most, and, in her pursuit of vengeance, wields a mystical blade tied to the spirits of African slaves and chiefs. Maryse and her friends with the sight--Sadie, a brash sharpshooter, and Chef, a female veteran of WWI--are called to Macon by Gullah matriarch Nana Jean to serve as soldiers in the ongoing war against Black bodies. Extradimensional monsters, which they call Ku Kluxes, have been possessing willing white hosts after being summoned by prominent Klan members, but an exponentially greater threat appears in the sinister Butcher Clyde, who spews a hateful noise that is the antithesis of the joyful shouts at Nana Jean's house and the singing of the spirits in Maryse's sword. Clark's latest is set in a visceral world, steeped in historical detail and full of engaging characters, that asks the question, "Who is to blame for the hate that hate made?" Highly recommended for all readers of speculative fiction, particularly fans of Lovecraftian monsters and body horror."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Nebula Award winner Clark (The Black God's Drums) vividly reimagines the Ku Klux Klan's second wave in this thrilling, provocative, and thoroughly badass fantasy. In Prohibition-era Macon, Ga., Maryse Boudreaux and friends--the scrappy Sadie and the unassuming WWI-veteran Chef--spend their days slaying Ku Kluxes, demons unleashed by a spell cast by Sorcerer D.W. Griffith in the form of the propaganda film Birth of a Nation. After a gripping and humorous battle between this ragtag trio and the Ku Kluxes, Klan ringleader Butcher Clyde, a creature who feeds on hate, reveals his master plan: use Griffith's spell to summon the Grand Cyclops. Maryse sets out to put an end to this reign of terror, but when Butcher Clyde makes Maryse an offer too tempting to refuse she must first conquer her own lust for vengeance. Clark expertly uses fantasy to highlight the mysticism underlying the nation's darkest moments. Lyrical interludes, mythicized "oral histories" of Gullah traditions, and haunting retellings of African American folklore add rich texture throughout. Readers will be both captivated and entertained by this fast-paced alternate history, which doubles as a meditation on the all-consuming power of hate and violence. Agent: Seth Fishman, the Gernert Company. (Oct.)"
