Publishers Weekly
Stewart (A Devil in the Details) provides non-stop action as Jesse James Dawson tries to take a vacation. Champion for hire Jesse battles demons to earn back his clients' souls while risking his own. Regularly beaten, battered, and bloodied in the line of duty and haunted by increasingly frequent nightmares about a demon called the Yeti who nearly killed him four years ago, Jesse looks forward to relaxing on his annual guys-only paintball trip into the mountains of Colorado. As they arrive at the remote cabin, Jesse and his friends are attacked by the Yeti, who has returned with backup: an army of vicious undead. Under siege and running out of options, Jesse must put himself on the line again to save the soul of a teenage boy and the lives of his friends. Solidly a bridging story that establishes threads for future books, Stewart's well-developed characters and taut pacing allow the story to hum with tension despite its straightforward plot. (July)

There are two kinds of demon hunters. The Catholic Church sanctions the Order of Saint Silvis and the others work for Grapevine. Jesse James Dawson is a champion though he has not one iota of magic; instead he relies on strength and cunning when battling a demon over a human's soul. Needing a respite, he heads to the Colorado Mountains with his brother Cole who once sold his soul to a demon; Will the paramedic, Marty the Armorer, and Cameron the seminary school dropout. Jesse almost changes his mind when powerful Axel the demon who craves his soul tells him he is glad to see the hunter on vacation. When the party arrives at the cabin, deformed hominoid creatures attack them; one bites the cabin owner's son Zane who wears the mark of someone who sold his soul to a demon. Zane is dying but they cannot leave the cabin as they are surrounded by a horde of creatures. Jesse freaks when he realizes they are trapped by the Yeti who he has defeated before. The yeti demon bargains with Jesse for Zane's soul. Axel arrives and seems on the side of Jesse and his friends; but the hunter knows how devious demons are when it comes to human soul harvesting. K.A. Stewart's second Jesse James Dawson thriller is an outstanding urban fantasy. The steadfast hero continues to remain duty diligent to protect the unsuspecting human race from demons that collect their souls. The protagonist knows never make a deal with a demon as it is like reading the fine print of a credit card contract in which A Devil in the Details will haunt the individual. The trapped vacationers will either male bond with trusting one another to protect their respective backs or become demon fodder in this super paranormal. Harriet Klausner
