"A must read for all young adult fiction fans " Lauren Lynne, author of The Recalcitrant Project
"... rollicking good fun. A great story of friendship, love, and sacrifice." Laurie Bell, author of The Butterfly Stone
The attack on Hunter's Grove High School by a Greater demon and the bully Donnie Wickles delivered a crushing blow to Charlie Sullivan, his friends, their families, and their once quiet, peaceful community. Everyone soon discovers the demon terrorizing Hunter's Grove is only the beginning of their troubles.
A trail of destructive, sinister activity--including the theft of a dangerous artifact, the release of a bloodthirsty Greater from captivity, and the threat of all six main portal cities coming under siege--stretches Charlie Sullivan and a broken and tired team of monster hunters across the globe.
The first team lands in Japan, at the site of one of the most embarrassing events in the country's history--Rashomon, the Dragon Gate. There, Charlie Sullivan faces the King of Demons, his vengeful lieutenant, and an army of creatures rising from the worst of nightmares. What happens next triggers a series of global cataclysmic events that some will not survive.
A new breed of monsters is released to level chaos against humanity as the master plan and purpose of evil in our world is revealed.
Suffering immense loss, exhaustion, and being tested beyond the limits of human understanding, Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunters face their most dangerous task as they set out to quell an ancient darkness that has now been awakened.
