Muddle and Win

The Battle for Sally Jones


Sally Jones is Good. And Muddlespot, former wart and janitor, now newly promoted to Demon Special Agent, is on a mission to make her Bad.  If he doesn't, it will be Very Bad for him.

In his way stands Windleberry - a lean, tough angel-hero. At his back is his scheming boss Corozin. Billie is Sally's wildcat sister, Ishmael is an angel run ragged by trying to keep Billie in line and Scattletail's a devil who sees she doesn't. And Shades is a cat with Purrsonality. But most formidable of all is Sally herself. She's cool, smart and likes the way she is.  Her mind is a maze of crystal passages in which a little devil could so easily get lost. She won't let anyone interfere...

Let the Battle begin.                 Read an extract
