Overview

Peter Townsend is not normal and doesn’t play well with normals. He belongs to the ancient line of auguren, demon hunters with only one goal: Protect ordinary humans from their demonic tempters.

But last year, protecting Holly Idaho shattered Peter’s world. When Dante Mullins, the demon hunting Holly, spirited her away to the infernal realm of Saltmarch, Peter went through hell to save her. Falling in love with her wasn’t part of the plan. Neither was leaving Dante alive.

Now Dante is back, and Holly is missing. Holly’s friends Anne and Owin insist on joining Peter in the furious search. But when a new demon enters the fray, one that makes Dante look angelic, its nightmarish power threatens to consume them all.

The loyalties of friendship might be more help than Peter can deal with. This time, saving Holly might just cost him his soul.

Shadows after Midnight is the second book in the Demons of Saltmarch trilogy. Approximately 70,000 words.

    Such an exciting sequel!

    Such an exciting sequel! The opening for this book is fast-paced and it never stops.

    Following Colors of Deception, Shadows leaves behind the viewpoint of demonic lodestone Holly and instead enters the head of auguren Peter. That transition allows Cantrell to introduce some amazing new depth and mystery to the Saltmarch universe.

    While the first book in the series only really flirted with fantasy elements until the very end, Shadows after Midnight is rich with the mystical aspects of Cantrell's universe, showing demons and demonhunters in full battle.

    Still, at heart it's a story about characters. It's fascinating to see the relationships that shape Peter, and to watch him struggle with his own past and shortcomings every bit as much as he struggles with the demons of Saltmarch.

    I loved it. Can't wait for the last book in the series.
