There is more to our world than meets the eye--darker things, crueler things. Exorcist John Fogg and his wife, psychic medium Theodora Knight, know what lurks in the shadows. But even they're not prepared for the worst Hell has to offer...
It was supposed to be a simple exorcism, a publicity stunt to firmly establish John and Theodora's thriving paranormal investigation empire in the public eye. But something went wrong, leading to an on-air massacre that unleashed a malicious host of demons and left Theodora catatonic, possessed by countless spirits.
John sets out on a desperate quest to find a cure for his wife, but his obsession brings him face-to-face with an even more terrifying problem: Theodora's possession is only one piece of a deadly plot that is threatening the entire world. Because an ancient evil is about to make Earth its battlefield--and without John and Theodora's intervention, there is no chance for salvation...

Sniegoski (The Raven's Child) introduces a fast-paced present-day adventure series that winks at horror tropes: the obligatory journey to Romania, tattoos that move, an absorbed fetal twin, and tentacled demons out of Lovecraft. During a live Halloween television special, Massachusetts-based ghost hunter John Fogg and his psychic wife, Theodora Knight, unleash a jar of imprisoned demons. After the demons pour into Theo's body, John must quickly find a spell to exorcise them before they take over Theo and then the world. John learns of the Demonists, a millennia-old coalition dedicated to defeating evil, led by Elijah, a former Vatican exorcist. Elijah agrees to help John if he collaborates with the Demonists to fight against the interdimensional demon lord Damakus, whose disciple is abducting children in preparation for a terrible ceremony of summoning. John gets help from unlikely sources, including pragmatic FBI agent Brenna Isabel, who is investigating the missing children, and John's compassionate, ghostly Nana. All the plot threads weave together into an intricate, creepy, and entertaining escapade. (Apr.)
