Finding Gods (Hunter's Tale #2) (Paperback)
Hunter and Susi have reluctantly found themselves with a prot g in Sniper, the Gunsmith with the whirling tattoos. After preventing a cult of Demons from unleashing Death into the world, the trio had returned to Hunter's preferred employment: hunting the monsters that make Mortals, and Demons, afraid of the dark. But their return to hunting was short-lived. On the back roads of Vermont, a soldier found himself in the path of their van with no memory as to how he had arrived there when he had been in the war-torn desert only hours before.
Danny Goodwin has no memory of the last day, and he smells so strongly of Demon that Susi is convinced that he must be a Demon himself, an accusation that Danny vehemently denies. But when Hunter and Danny are attacked by a hellbeast in the woods, a hellbeast that acts like it recognizes Danny, it becomes clear that the boy is no ordinary Mortal. And when the group meets Mari, a Longing Demon who has begun to weave a story of death with Danny as her protagonist, there is no doubt that greater forces are at work.
Sniper is seeing monsters. Abbadon, the Elder God who ritualistically slaughtered her family and who in turn paid for his crimes with death at Sniper's hands, is taunting her in every reflection. When faced with the very real possibility that she may be consumed by the thing that she hates most, Sniper must choose: fight back against the creeping insanity or die.
Brought together, seemingly by chance, the ragtag bunch embarks on a journey with the goal of reminding Danny of his past, and his present. Faced with hellbeasts, a Holocaust Demon, and an army of Humans beholden to Mari, it will take every bit of ammunition in Hunter and Susi's arsenal to ensure that they come out alive. As their story unfolds the heroes may find that, this time around, they may not be able to control their fate.
