After surviving a demon attack, disgraced police detective Victoria Martin tracks down the Valducans in search of answers. Recognizing her potential, and despite the warnings of the other knights, Allan Havlock, protector of Ibenus, takes her in as his apprentice. As the Valducans travel to Paris to destroy a demon nest infesting the catacombs, the knights find themselves hunted by an Internet group intent on exposing them. Victoria, who belongs to this group, must desperately play both sides to protect not only herself but Allan, whom she has begun to love.

I never realized how much I would love a book featuring Alan as the main character but even 50 pages into this book I was enraptured with the character and plot. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys urban/modern fantasy.

Eleven years ago atheist Malcolm Romero met a god. Now he's a demon-hunting voodoo priest armed with a holy machete named Hounacier. After the murder of his mentor, he returns to New Orleans to catch the killer. But more is at stake when Malcolm finds himself betrayed and his holy blade stolen. Now Malcolm's only hope to save his soul and to recover Hounacier is the Valducan knight sent to kill him, Matt Hollis, the wielder of the holy revolver Dämoren.

Excellent writing, getting the next book right now. An amazing treatment of the Loa and New Orleans as a whole. Looking forward to the next book starring Dr. Malcolm Romero.

Matt Hollis is the current wielder of the holy weapon, DÄMOREN. With it, he stalks and destroys demons. A secret society called the VALDUCANS has taken an interest in Matt's activities. They see him as a reckless rogue - little more than a "cowboy" corrupted by a monster - and a potential threat to their ancient order. As knights and their sentient weapons begin dying, Matt teams up with other hunters of his kind such as LUIZA, a woman with a conquistador blade; ALLAN, an Englishman with an Egyptian khopesh; MALCOLM, a voodoo priest with a sanctified machete; and TAKAIRA, a naginata-swinging Samurai.
