Overview

Centuries ago, the Salem witches founded the village of Raine's Landing, then cloaked it in magic to hide it from sight. Many of their descendants still practice the supernatural arts—and no one who lives here can ever leave.

Now evil has breached its boundaries once again . . .

A serial killer with a corrupt and twisted soul, Cornelius Hanlon has freely entered Raine's Landing, undeterred by the ancient magical safeguards. And when he chooses the town's oldest adept as his first victim, the maniac inadvertently gains possession of a powerful "gift" more terrible than anything he could have sadistically dreamed.

Ex-town cop Ross Devries and his Harley-riding sometime-partner, Cassandra Mallory, have no supernatural abilities. But they are the last line of defense in this village of secrets and shadows—facing a psychopath who now wields the power to bend the living and the dead to his will.

    Night of Demons, Book 2

    Raine's Landing discovers a terror the town has never seen before, when an insane serial killer obsessed with the Apocalypse, finds his way into their cursed town. Ex-cop Ross Devries is called into action once again, and still with the label of Defender given to him by Amashta, an ancient shaman woman. The characters do grow in this fast paced, funny, and captivating sequel. Woodard Raine is just as powerful and certifiably insane as before, but surprises me and Ross at the end. When the smoke/fog demons rampage across town killing, Lehman Willets is more of a help to the community. The Little Girl is still just as mysterious as she was in 'Dark Rain', but behaves a little out of character in this book. And, Cassie will experience her dark and troubled past, while living with the continuous heartache of loosing her family, causing her to face her inner demon. But the question is, will she still be there backing Ross, or not? The real trouble starts when the 'Shadow Man' gets his hands on the Wand of Dantiere, making him more powerful than the town's adepts combined. But, the wand is Millicent Tollburn's, once Cornelius Hanlon has had his special fun with Lucas Tollburn. Everyone is shock to learn that Lauren, a FBI agent hunting down the serial killer, is able to come into Raine's Landing more easily than she is at accepting that magic and the things going on around her really do exist. The inner demons of the townspeople are easily brought to the surface, and the End of Days is near in Raine's Landing. But, how do you defeat the most powerful wand known, held by Death himself, on a 'Night of Demons'?
