Demon's Baneby David Douglas
Lieh Morel is along for the ride, possessed by a bloodthirsty killer. As Lieh's captor demons chase her son across the continent of Kartus, using her magic to wreak havoc
Senn Morel lives in fear of demons. But when they butcher his clan and possess his mother, he vows to use his newfound magic to take vengeance on these demon spirits that have invaded his world.
Lieh Morel is along for the ride, possessed by a bloodthirsty killer. As Lieh's captor demons chase her son across the continent of Kartus, using her magic to wreak havoc along the way, she hopes to avoid a violent confrontation that could kill them both.
The demon Xiuhcoatl is an experienced kidnapper, working for the lord of the demons-Senn's father. As he aids Lieh's possessors in tracking down Senn, he learns that not all demon spirits think the same way about their return to the physical world.
Demon's Bane follows the Morels on the high seas, across rolling plains, and through thick forests in a thrilling tale filled with romance and betrayal. But the real question is, who will take control of Kartus . . . and who will end up dead?

This is a brand new book by a brand new author. I really liked it, and I think it could turn into a big thing, so read it now! If you've read a lot of fantasy books, read this one. If you haven't, read this one. It's an all around good read for anybody. Demon's Bane has some great three-dimensional characters (ie not boring). It also doesn't follow the predictable theme of good and evil. There are some characters that aren't quite good or evil, which is refreshing. It's always nice when somebody gives you a satisfying book which is solidly within the fantasy genre, yet breaks out of predictable formats. But, what I thought really makes this book stand out is the new and unique way the author has of describing how people in his world cast magic spells. Most books describe how it feels, waving wands, etc., but this book describes spell casting like an engineer might imagine it. Turns out, per the bio on the back, the author is himself a mechanical engineer. It's hard for me to describe how the author does it, but it's a new look at an old theme that is technical without being dull or complicated. Enjoy!
