I love this book. Blake Northcott has seamlessly shifted genres and proven she’s as masterful in magic and fantasy as she was in science-fiction. Don’t pick this up unless you’re prepared to not put it down.”


- Mark Millar (Marvel's 'Civil War', 'Kingsman', 'Kick-Ass')



"Once it takes hold, it refuses to let go. Successfully fusing a spy thriller and supernatural adventure is not easy, but Blake Northcott delivers in full, face-melting force, all while building an immersive world that you will not want to leave."


- Cullen Bunn (NYT bestselling author, 'The 6th Gun', 'X-Men', 'Deadpool') ​ ​



"A razor sharp page-turner that seamlessly blends two worlds--a late 90s teen horror film, and a cat-and-mouse spy thriller where magic is a weapon. It's electric, and I've never read anything like it."


- Rees Jones (co-author of 'Royals' with James Patterson)



Since 2011, Blake Northcott has penned seven full-length prose novels, and two short stories. Her international bestselling trilogy of novels 'The Arena Mode Saga' are currently being published by Heavy Metal Magazine, distributed by Simon & Schuster.

"Telling the story of a magical conspiracy through the lens of teen adventure, The North Valley Grimoire is what would happen if James Patterson and J.K. Rowling had a baby and it grew up to be a best-seller."


- Scott Lobdell (Happy Death Day, Uncanny X-Men and X-Factor)
