Overview

Nicholas Hughes has finally gone to ground, but that doesn't mean that he's done running, or that Scarlet's done chasing. When last he saw her, she promised to take his head, but when next he hears of her, she's waist deep in trouble and he's the only one that can help her out of it. This time the problem isn't so much choice. It's price. After all, he has his own battle to fight, with things speaking into his ear and looking over his shoulder. She told him too that all debts come due, and among all the shadows, it's difficult to see the face of the clock that's counting down. He's not in Bay City anymore, but then again, Nick also isn't the same man, but that doesn't mean the man he's become won't regret the decisions made by the man he was.

    This fast-paced novella is about Nicholas/Nick, a renegade with supernatural powers. The story begins with Nick working odd jobs at a gas station. He comes off as a drifter, possibly in exile, and loves to read his boss’s old journals and books. Nick drives an old motorcycle and frequently hears a voice inside of his head that is not his own. From early on I got the impression that he wasn’t crazy, but gifted.
    Scarlet, a woman from Nick’s past, reenters his life. She befriends a woman named Maggie. Both women have an interest in a mysterious accountant who is locked up in the town’s jail. Besides Scarlet, Maggie’s band consists of two other men, Shaw and Claus. They violently raid the jail and get the accountant.
    Nick hears about the bloodbath and is compelled to join them. First, he rescues them from a motorcycle gang. They take him in and go on more adventures, eventually leading to a religious cult.
    My Review:
    I immediately was pulled into the story as the author described Mounds, a town with a fascinating back story about legend and death. The rest of the story takes place in other nearby towns I believe to be on the east coast in Virginia.
    I really liked the original characters, especially the villains, Bishop Ross, the hybrid man and feral lycanthrope, and Deacon Drake, the religious zealot vampire. I visualized Nick and his gang being a gang of bad-ass motorcycle superheroes with paranormal flair.
    This is the second book in the series and I didn’t read the first book. Some of the references and past relationships were difficult to decipher. However, the author did a great job in back-tracking so new readers could still follow along. Overall, the book was engrossing and action-packed. I highly recommend this quick read for paranormal lovers, but also recommend reading the first book first (Where the Shadows Lie: Bay City which is on my short list for books to be read this summer). I’m anxious to know what happens next. Will Nick and Scarlet get together? What is the Academy? Will the gang stay together? J.E. Cammon left an open ending for a third book in the series.
