    Enthralling

    In Boston's Deadtown quarantined zone, Vicky Vaughn is the only local professional demon exterminator amongst a horde of paranormal Americans. After her recent banishing of a Hellion demon, Vicky figures she can take the advice of her sister dormant shapeshifting wife and mother Gwen who tells her to get a life by enjoying her time with her First Amendment rights lawyer boyfriend Kane the werewolf.

    However her respite ends when she realizes she is the connection between the recent horrific murders of several now twice deceased zombies. Her concerned Aunt Mab demands her slayer niece go to Wales to obtain training on fighting a Hellion demon. She also tells Vicky she must read The Book of Utter Darkness to understand her part in the prophecies; although when she was a child her touching the forbidden despicable tome led to her father's death. A stranger arrives insisting he is Pryce her cousin who knows her destiny and plans to use Vicky's role to bring hell on earth.

    With the Human-Paranormal Joint Task Force "Goon Squad" watching her every move, Vicky already feels paranoid, which will exponentially grow as she begins to understand her destiny. Demons, demi-demons and other ilk try to manipulate her, but Vicky is an exterminator; so she begins to fight back with Kane and her teenage zombie apprentice Tina having her back as the action goes global including "to hell and back" (late Medal of Honor winner and actor Sergeant Audie Murphy would understand).

    Great Sequel - Can't Wait for the Next One

    Vicky Vaughn is a shape shifting demon slayer. But it seems things are going downhill fast. Her zombie apprentice has decided that she would rather be a backup singer in the only zombie rock band. The Destroyer, the demon bound to Vicky, is invading her dreams, and zombies are being turned into black goo.

    Vicky breaks down and asks her Aunt Mab for help and is told to get home and not to fall asleep until she is there. Vicky learns that a demi-demon, Pryce, has found a prophecy that says the two of them are going to have children and this is supposed to bring Hell to this plane.

    Now Vicky is trying to interpret The Book of Utter Darkness and train to fight Pryce and his shadow demon. But it seems like everything is against her, and the book keeps talking about the same prophecy that Pryce is insistent about without any other interpretation possible.

    When Kane flies over to share the latest news with Vicky about him being framed for murder, Vicky is still trying to figure out where they are in a relationship and how to protect him from the evil trying to take over.

    I really liked this book. Even though things just keep getting worse, Vicky keeps struggling through. I really liked learning more about Mab since she was introduced in Deadtown. I also like how the story finished but leaves the possibility for sequels. I do admit that Tina really annoyed me and I hope she is not in the next one.

    I Also Recommend:

    Even better than "Deadtown"

    "Deadtown" was fantastic, but "Hellforged" was phenomenal. Holzner's take on the supernatural is offbeat without being needlessly bizarre, her writing style is lively, her characters engaging and her plots fast-paced. I raced through this book in less than a day and now will impatiently await the release of "Bloodstone" in October.
