Every Devil has a Beginning...
In this first of three prequels to the awardÂwinning
Devil DeVere series, we meet Ludovic, Ned,
and Simon as youths in this riotous Georgian romp written in
the tradition of Fielding's Tom Jones.
Since their first meeting at Westminster, Ned, Simon,
and DeVere had forged an ironÂclad
bond that had maintained them through nearly six years. From
the outset, Ludovic's scandalous
family secrets had set him apart from the other aristocratic
scions as an "untouchable." Deny it as
he tried, the ugly truth remained that his mother was indeed
the biggest whore in England, and his
presumed father, the viscount, no less than a poxÂridden madman.
Likewise, Simon Singleton's poetic proclivities had
instantly made him the bullies' mark,
and even Edward Chambers' great size had served as little
deterrent for the upper classmen's
taunts when accompanied by adolescent awkwardness and a
broad North Country drawl.
By the end of the first form, however, DeVere's finely
honed shell of arrogance, Ned's
increasing brawn, and Sin's rapier wit, had given birth to
an unholy triumvirate that came to
wreak perpetual and unchallenged havoc upon Westminster
School. Now, it appeared their
illustrious reign had come to an inglorious end.
Intent on serving up revenge on their tyrannical
schoolmaster, a prank with the king's lion goes
comically awry, leading to a startling chain of events.
