Two years have passed since Quinn Sullivan vanquished the Demon of Resolution Cove armed with only Autumn Donnelly's dagger. Now, new forces conspire to test the Guardian once more as he is sent to discover who, or what, was behind the suicide of Inspector Green's son. Little does he expect what awaits for him in the mountain town of Cranbrook.
Devoid of the Guardian's protection, Quinn's fellow RCMP constables are set in a trap they cannot escape as piles of human bones begin turning up. A serial killer is on the loose, searching for a little girl with abilities that will release others of its ilk to rain Hell down on earth.
Armed with only Autumn's dagger and her courage, Quinn must save those he loves lest they, too, become nothing but bones. T0 win, the Guardian must make a sacrifice. For him to succeed, one must fall.

Terrific pacing and tension in this thriller made it really hard to put down. Creepy and compelling! I loved it!
Dark Resolution is the sequel to Gillies' first published horror/thriller, The Watch. Once again, Quinn Sullivan and his band of Mounties must do battle with an ancient evil that invades a small town in British Columbia. This can be read on its own, but I highly recommend reading The Watch first. In this book, you can definitely see Gillies' progression as a writer. While both books are good, Dark Resolution is tighter, more riveting, and there is a lot more character development. In both books, Gillies gives you a behind-the-scenes peek at what it is *really* like to be a police officer, demons aside. This is one of the things that sets his work apart - it is grittier and more authentic than its competition, and I personally love that. Overall, I enjoyed this novel. Gillies nicely sets up a teaser for the third book in the series, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what happens next.
