His name is Nathan Garrett, but he’s also known as Hellequin. And murdering one of his friends and trying to blow him up is a good way to get this centuries-old sorcerer’s full attention…
An old friend’s dead body, a cryptic note, and an explosion that almost costs him his own life propel Nate headfirst into a mystery involving a new threat from an old foe. Now he must piece together the connections between a grisly series of tattooed murder victims, an imprisoned madman, a mysterious alchemist, and a deranged plot to usurp the throne of the hidden realm of Shadow Falls, rival to the power of Avalon.
Can Nate avert the coming slaughter, or will he become the latest to fall in this clandestine war?
With the story careening between modern-day New York and Ontario, and 1977 Maine, With Silent Screams continues the gritty and action-packed mix of urban fantasy and ancient mythology that mark Steve McHugh’s popular Hellequin Chronicles.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Nate, aka Hellequin, is called back to investigate more murders in Stratford that may be related to murders back from 1977 and to Shadow Falls wtih King Gallhad. A richly vivid narrative fills the pages of this story. Elements of the supernatural, humor, and action intertwine to add enjoyment to the mysteries. Characters are flawed, authentic for their reality, compassionate, and develop as the story continues. Overall, an awesome read.
