"pure horror with plenty of well-done humor to cut the tension"
Dean Koontz, move over. Stephen King, watch it, there's a
new guy in town and he's cutting in on your territory. And
he's really, really good, too.
In the town of Dark Harbor, an old evil lurks. Paul
Stanford, a man raised in Dark Harbor, feels compelled to
return home. He meets Jenny Gazio, a former love also
returned to town. Paul has 'the gift', something the
lurking evil needs to unlock the forces of Hell. The evil
is not above using Jenny to see to it Paul uses his gift.
NIGHT DEMONS is an excellent book, pure horror, with a
capital H, just as the masters of this field write, with
the same attention to detail, the "nice little things" that
make the story flow. It has plenty of well-done humor to
cut the tension, and characters that feel real, even the
minor ones whose lifespan is tragically brief.
This was an excellent job, Mr. Hopkins. Most excellent!

NOTE: This title is available only through the Publisher.
A demon escapes imprisonment to complete a deadly mission
he began one-hundred years before.
Deep within the blood-drenched walls of an ancient mansion
Nathan Courtwright initiates a bizarre rite that will free
every depraved soul since time immemorial to prey upon the
living and grant him eternal reign over the legions of the
damned. The price: the sacrifice of his beloved Catherine.
Halted on the verge of success, Nathan discovers the cost
of failure is far greater: living interment in the family
mausoleum, his demon soul consigned to a netherworld of
torture and suffering for all eternity.
But when the mausoleum is torn down to make way for a new
drug rehabilitation center a century later, the evil that
was Nathan Courtwright escapes...an evil capable of prying
into its victims' deepest fears and blackest nightmares.
Haunted by images of the past and frightening visions, Paul
Stanford returns to the fate-shrouded town of Dark Harbor,
Maine--a town filled with sorrow and dark memories. Within
days he finds himself locked in a desperate and terrifying
struggle that spans a century-old feud and demonic desires.
The ancient horror, reborn and all-consuming, lures him
into its deadly web of deceit and lust and only he holds
the key to the door of the damned—a key that will cost him
the life of the woman he loves and his very soul.
A key that will fill the world with Night Demons...
