The Diviners are BACK. 

Well, almost! We are so excited to share that the third installment of Libba Bray’s posi-tute-ly fabulous and spooky Diviners series is coming out this fall—on October 3rd to be exact. EW.com revealed the cover of Before the Devil Breaks You yesterday along with a little snippet (check it out here) and let’s just say we cannot wait to be transported back to 1920′s New York where mysticism and the occult are real…

Here’s the full synopsis:

The Diviners are back in this thrilling and eerie third installment by #1 New York Times bestselling author Libba Bray.

After battling a sleeping sickness, The Diviners are up against a group of new and malevolent foes–ghosts! Out in Ward’s Island sits a mental hospital full of lost souls from people long forgotten. Ghosts who have unusual and dangerous ties to the Man in the Stovepipe Hat also known as the King of Crows.

With terrible accounts of murder and possession flooding in from all over New York City, the Diviners must band together and brave the ghosts haunting the asylums to bring down the King of Crows.

Heart-pounding action and terrifying moments will leave you breathless in the third book of the four-book Diviners series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Libba Bray.

If this cover looks different from The Diviners and Lair of Dreams, you’re right! With this new spooky cover direction, we (of course) had to make sure the first two books got a makeover, as well. Check it out:

Spooky, spooky! We can’t wait to get all three editions together on a bookshelf. Is it October yet…?

The attendees, including many who have spent the past month protesting the police killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, said they came to honor the officers who were killed and those who have been killed by officers.
