Heaven is hunting Dale Highland.
For ten years, she’s been on the run, plagued by violent blackouts and increasingly baffled by a growing array of superpowers—mind control, super strength, enhanced healing abilities.
What Dale doesn’t know is that Heaven’s greatest bounty hunter, John Goodwin, has been on her trail the whole time. When John finally corners her in New York City, he reveals the source of her powers: her mother was a demon.
They forge an unlikely connection and go on the run. In pursuit are his fellow bounty hunters, a deadly guild of angels known as the Thrones. Their goal: eradicate all demons—which includes Dale. As they flee across New England, Dale delves into the mystery of her own heritage and discovers that she’s a key figure in an ancient war between angels and demons.
Only this time, the angels are the bad guys.
Headlong and action-packed, The Demon Within is the first of the four-volume Dale Highland series.
Praise for THE DEMON WITHIN
“This inventive and exciting tale had me breathlessly flipping the pages―and I loved every minute! Get ready for a sexy, twisty, dangerous ride that crackles with pure awesomeness.”
―Carolyn Crane, USA Today bestselling author
“Engaging, old-school urban fantasy. Will appeal to readers hungering for spirited supernatural action with a dash of forbidden romance.”
―Jenn Bennett, author of the Arcadia Bell series
“A fast-paced, engaging book. A nice blend of horror and paranormal. Dale Highland is totally my spirit animal.”
―Joe Alfano, Wicked Little Pixie
“A strong novel and my first five-star [review] of the year.”
―Michael D. Griffiths, SFReader.com
“I greatly enjoyed The Demon Within, and I look forward to continuing the books in the series. Dale feels dynamic, whole, and despite her demonic side, completely and utterly human. I long to see her grow into her powers and become at home in her own skin since, like many geeks, I know the struggles of finding my place and my people. In many ways, Dale’s journey is a metaphor for anyone who has longed to find somewhere he or she can be themselves and be fully understood.”
―Jodi Scaife, Fanbase Press
