DEVIL’S POCKET Is Officially on Sale!

August 4, 2015

Happy birthday to DEVIL’S POCKET, my sequel to the Bram Stoker Award-winning PHOENIX ISLAND! It’s been a long journey, and I’m excited that release day is here at last.


Here’s the premise:

To save his friends and topple Phoenix Force, seventeen-year-old super soldier Carl Freeman must win the Funeral Games, a mysterious, no-holds-barred fighting tournament held in its own ninth circle of hell: Devil’s Pocket. With his knuckles encased in leather cesti, Carl competes against the world’s deadliest gladiators – until a shocking ally reveals an explosive secret deep in the heart of the volcano.

And here’s what people are saying:

“Adrenaline-infused . . . Dixon combines futuristic technical advances with graphic fight scenes for a satisfying adventure thriller.” — Publishers Weekly

“One hell of a story… makes THE HUNGER GAMES look like Chutes & Ladders!” — Peter Clines​, author of THE FOLD, 14, and the EX-HEROES series

“A raging success… deserves to be in schools and libraries everywhere.” — Cemetery Dance Magazine

“Lots of heart… I may have cried.” My Bookish Ways


I hope that you’ll give DEVIL’S POCKET a chance… and hope that you’ll let me know what you think. It’s available at bookstores and online. Click here to reach its main page, which includes links to multiple buying options.

I should note that the paperback edition is currently crazy-inexpensive on Amazon, on $5.25… quite a bit cheaper than the $8.99 Kindle edition. Don’t know how long this will last, but I figured I’d mention it to those of you who still prefer a real book. You can snag this deal here.

    1. Sadly, it seems that way. I really wish they’d done one, Linda. I loved Kirby’s narration of the first book.

  1. Dear John, I congratulate you on an excellent book I read the book called Death Island I live in Turkey I can not read in the devil’s pocket Unfortunately I do not have a Turkish translation I do not feel so sorry do you help me?

  2. Thank you, Enes. I’m sorry for the late reply. I haven’t been active with my blog. The sequel did come out in Turkey from Go Kitap. I believe that the title is DEATH RACE. Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy the second book.
