From The Sunday Times bestselling author of B&N's best books of 2022 A Dowry of Blood, comes a spellbinding and vibrant new series.

The Devil knows your name, David Aristarkhov.

As a teen, David Aristarkhov was a psychic prodigy, operating under the shadow of his oppressive occultist father. Now, years after his father’s death and rapidly approaching his thirtieth birthday, he is content with the high-powered life he’s curated as a Boston attorney, moonlighting as a powerful medium for his secret society.

But with power comes a price, and the Devil has come to collect on an ancestral deal. David’s days are numbered, and death looms at his door.

Reluctantly, he reaches out to the only person he’s ever trusted, his ex-boyfriend and secret Society rival Rhys, for help. However, the only way to get to Rhys is through his wife, Moira. Thrust into each other’s care, emotions once buried deep resurface, and the trio race to figure out their feelings for one another before the Devil steals David away for good…

Praise For…

"With characters as vibrant as the story is twisted, Evocation is the start of a bold new saga—daring, pulpy, and delicious."
– K. M. Enright, author of Mistress of Lies

“A story as intimate as it is decadent, A delightful romp through occult society, grounded by all-too-human characters, the power of love is a real and vibrant force in this story and its effects are profound. Sincerity is scary and Gibson aims to thrill."
– Elizabeth Kilcoyne, Morris Award finalist for Wake the Bones

"Gibson has crafted a meditation on abuse, grief, and the shadows of past lives which delves into the liminal space between what we desire and what we deserve, and interrogates the trust between those who have hurt each other more deeply than can ever be erased—all as it offers characters who will be indelibly inked on your memory, bound together by secrets and bargains stronger than death itself."
—Laura R. Samotin, author of The Sins On Their Bones

"Dazzling and compelling from start to finish, S.T. Gibson’s Evocation crackles with magic and the strong chemistry between its three leads."
– Morgan Dante, author of A Flame in the Night

"Romantic and delectable, Evocation is an entrancing start to a new series by S. T. Gibson. If anyone can make you root for three intricately crafted characters, it is Gibson. David, Rhys and Moria have ensnared me, I will be making a deal with the devil, just to get book two in my hands."
- Ben Alderson, author of Lord of Eternal Night

"Gibson pairs the old-world elegance of a secret occult society with the glitz and glamor of modern urban magic to create a dazzling world."
