The Demon in Exile Saga

Is demon-slayer a genre? In Japan, certainly. In the west, it's catching on. In the fantasy realm of Colivar, it's a way of life.

In many ways, demons and humankind are alike, devious, full of energy and strength, yet they vary in one key aspect. Every human has a heart to share in the creation of our reality. Demons do not; their souls remain lonesome and bleak because of it, bringing only death, disease, and war to whatever they touch. They lack volition. When they cross the Veil into our world, utter chaos ensues.

The Demon in Exile series launched in October 2020 with an ambitious, demon-slayer plot line, a blend of action, mystery, psychodrama, and suspense. It's a work of pure fantasy based on some of the early philosophies of CG Jung where humanity vies with demons for control of their own world. Fans of urban fantasy, vampire/werewolf fantasy, or even military fantasy will enjoy this genre-bending series. The authors imagination and compelling first person narration build a witty blend of pain-filled action and twisted drama where the characters are as strong as they are flawed, and nothing is ever as it seems.

The series consists of 9 full-length novels to be released beginning with Book #1, FIREFANGED, in October of 2020 via Amazon (ebook, hardcover, and paperback) and B&N (paperback). Book #9, VIGIL STORM, arrives in June of 2022. An ebook omnibus will arrive shortly thereafter for the binge readers in our midst. Let's face it, this is a series to be binged. Each book is better than the last. 

Escape with them. You won't be disappointed.
