REVIEW

"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!

SUMMARY

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...
