The Hunger and the Howling of Killian Lone

Will Storr. S&S/Marble Arch, $16 trade paper (364p) ISBN 978-1-4767-3043-1
This riveting first novel melds urban fantasy with psychotic personalities and more than a dash of horror. The first inkling that Killian Lone’s gift for cooking might be magical comes when his rage at his boss manifests as a fly that lands on the abusive man’s lip. Killian’s job as an apprentice chef at Max Mann’s famous London restaurant is backbreaking and soul crushing. To Killian, the slights, sadistic tests, and belittling taunts are all part and parcel of the journey from apprentice to master chef. He will endure anything as long as the end result is fame and recognition. And he can be the best chef in London—once his great-aunt’s cottage and its secrets are his. Storr entices the senses with luscious descriptions of food while offering a grim, destructive vision of a brutal, personality-driven profession. (Mar.)
