I Want to Read It (79): The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding



I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be-read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the ones, I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.



The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding (Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding, 1) by Alexandra Bracken, September 5, 2017. Published by Disney-Hyperion. Source: Want to Read.
Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper's great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn't exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.
Why

I have never, as far as I can recall, read anything by Alexandra Bracken. I've thought about trying some of her other books, but never got around to it.

Yet, The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding sounds really good. The kind of good where you want to know what will happen to the main character, Prosper Redding in the case of this book; like will he be able to break the family curse? I need to know the answers to these questions!!

Have you read The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding? If you were to recommend another book by Alexandra Bracken, which would you recommend?
