From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name, comes a mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science
Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the town's top scientist, she relies on fact and logic as her guiding principles, which is why it has come as such a shock to find herself falling for Darryl, a committed member of the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God. Caught between her beliefs in the ultimate power of science and his unshakable faith in a Smiling God, she begins to investigate the Congregation, only to find evidence of dark acts and a connection to a mysterious rumbling in the desert wasteland outside of town. Nilanjana and Darryl will be faced with the Congregation's hidden truths and secret plans that could endanger not just their newfound connection but the entire town of Night Vale.
A page-turning mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science, the interactions of two young people who want desperately to trust each other, and the terrifying, toothy power of the Smiling God, It Devours! will entertain both fans of Night Vale and those discovering its extraordinary world for the first time.
