9781936564361: Pazuzu's Girl

Morpho Wilson thought her life was difficult enough. Her father is Pazuzu, the Mesopotamian demon of plague and the Southwest wind. As a teenager, Morpho struggles against her father, while trying to adjust to high school in a new neighborhood. The family is constantly moving in an attempt to elude Pazuzu's murderous ex-wife, a demoness known for killing children.

Then something interesting happens. A socially-impaired classmate becomes so intrigued by Morpho that he pursues her, despite the mystery surrounding her family and the danger that accompanies it.

But before their romance can grow, the demoness tracks Morpho down, and now only needs an ancient artifact called the Tablet of Destiny to complete the destruction of the world. The tablet confers on its owner the ability to control the fate of everything and everyone on earth.

Once the tablet is discovered in the Middle East, the oldest and most powerful gods begin a battle for its possession, with the human population caught in the middle. Morpho, her family, and her new friend must decide, do they escape from the horrifying demoness or fight for their own destiny? How far will Pazuzu go to save his daughter from a hellish fate? Will his banishment from Heaven so many millennia ago end up being a curse...or a blessing?

About the Author:

Rachel Coles lives and works in Denver, Colorado with her husband Adam, and young daughter. An anthropologist by training, Rachel pursued her love of diverse cultures and passion for mythology into writing. She is from an Ashkenazi Jewish family, and grew up with a rich background in Semitic and Middle Eastern folklore. Together with her husband and daughter, she enjoys martial arts, science fiction, fantasy, and horror, in all their forms. They are, in fact, the proud parents of the youngest Trekkie in the state. Rachel Coles' other credits include the story Orphans of Lethe in the new anthology What Fears Become from Imajin Press, and numerous other horror shorts in genre magazines, in addition to two short story anthologies: Beyond the Veil, and Into The Ruins.

Review:

Pazuzu's Girl truly is a thrill ride. Author Rachel Coles does a magnificent job giving just enough backstory to keep the reader intrigued while building the drama to a climactic end. Every time Morpho speaks I can hear my own daughter's voice, and that kind of realism is priceless. It intertwines many mythological deities and demons most notably from the Middle East with our everyday modern world. ...for those of us who are fans of this style of speculative fiction, Pazuzu's Girl will be an entertaining read. -Tales of the Talisman

"The rising tension in the battle of good versus evil rivals that of any summer blockbuster film. The conclusion is touching and reaffirms the very humanistic side of society that is often labelled as detached or inept towards compassion. There is a very promising future for Ms. Rachel Coles."  -  HorrorNews.net

"A story of family, romance, and the supernatural, 'Pazuzu's Girl' is a fun and fast paced read that should prove hard to put down." - Midwest Book Reviews

"The way Coles wove the mythology through this book was fascinating, the ancient meeting the modern. Her characters and descriptions are as dichotomous as the gods themselves - poetic and alluring, horrific and ghastly." - Refracted Light Reviews

"Pazuzu's Girl by Rachel Coles is a unique story, and that is positive praise indeed when I can say I have never read anything quite like it.  Pazuzu's Girl has it all: great plot, great action, and great characters. And best of all, great demons."  -  Jeani Rector, Editor - The Horror Zine
