Still more from DC Press! We are excited to announce the mostly amusing, often satirical, and occasionally dark fantasy from Stella Drexler, Divine Disorder: The Unmaking now available on eBook and look for it soon in paperback!
In the unpredictable land of Pandia, angels heavenly and infernal interfere in the lives of humans, and trivial, man-made gods muck things up at every turn. Modern technology and ancient magic battle it out in cities populated by men and beasts. Penthos falls prey to a mad necromancer. In Scathach, the Darklords command the darkest of elements, and a mysterious Shadow Council is behind the whole mess, secretly maintaining the divine disorder.
In Hyperion City, the delicate balance is about to be disturbed.
When Zebulon Tan, a runic sorcerer at the Gwydion Academy of Sorcery discovers a spell to unlock the gate to Hao, a dimension of pure, destructive chaos, infernal angel Darius enlists Sho Sange and Associates, a motley mercenary firm with a variety of curious and rather embarrassing abilities. While Sho attends to troubling matters in Scathach where he is heir to Darklordship Blood, his associates Xen, a vigilante wizard on the edge of madness, Oni, a maniac with an alarming adroitness with explosives, and Simon, a mysterious gentlemen after whom accidental nudity follows, take the case. While Xen meets Zebulon’s assistant, Sora, and tries not to lose his head, Oni gets caught up with a number of male professors and the destruction of several valuable items, and Simon is excruciatingly embarrassed. Things are going awfully wrong. If they can’t stop Zebulon from opening the gate, the entire world will descend into utter chaos. The god of Poorly Executed Magic Tricks and his friends, Unrequited Love and Minor Inconveniences, might want to start over with better patron powers, but the rest of the world thinks that’s a pretty rubbish reason to die. What ensues is a series of ridiculous events and endless cock-ups which lead to the very brink of complete disaster, unavoidable tragedy, and the unmaking of everything.
