Twelve dead children. An ex-priest with the faith to move mountains. A hunter out of the depths of legend. Together, they must find a way to overcome their pasts and become something entirely new if they are to defeat an ancient evil.
David Shaughnessy was content in his life as a police detective in Armata, California. It lacked the visceral, sick thrill that came with exorcising demons, but it was better for him, saner. Until the night he got called out to a vicious murder in the woods, and met Dallan Jaeger. The older man and Interpol agent is much more than he seems to be, and their connection is immediate, powerful. Trust blooms quickly as they learn to work together to pursue the evil fae responsible for the murders.
So I didn’t see that coming. Did I miss the part about this was fantasy? I’m so glad I did!
My first by this author, a page turning who-one-it. From start to finish.
David was treated very badly by the Church. Now living in a small town with his sister and a bunch of children that are as unique as he is. He is trying to stay low key and just be normal. Until a case breaks that wide open.
Dallan on the other hand embraces the supernatural side of life. The good an bad of it.
Together they not only have to solve a gruesome string of murders but David may have just found the one man that can an will heal him.
What a unique tale for me. We’ve the tale of things that go bump in the night, we have things that aren’t supposed to hurt us. And then we have this crazy loving family that helps heal and make it all better at the end of the day. I love the way Dallan has the patience of Job for David. David knows he can’t but wants. And all the while both understand they both have the different skills needed to find and finish this predator
