A chilling excerpt from Pyper’s newest book The Demonologist:
Her mouth opens. The bared throat papery as a discarded snakeskin. A rank breath passing up from within her and licking against my lips, sealing them shut.
She exhales. And before I can awaken, she releases an endless sigh. One that forms itself into an utterance that grows in volume and force, until it billows out of her as a kind of poem.
A welcome. A heresy.
Read Pyper discuss this excerpt in the National Post.
