Night of Demons deals with a serial killer, Cornelius Hanlon, who leads a non-magical
female police officer, Lauren, into the magical and mysterious town of Raine’s Landing. Raine’s
Landing is known to be the home of the Salem witches and possibly cursed, or at least filled with
magical people. Hanlon goes on a rampage against the town with the help of a magical wand that he
obtains from his first victim. Lauren teams up with former cop, Ross Devries, and his sometime
partner, Cassandra Mallory, in order to contain Hanlon.
Night of Demons has some great action scenes and keeps the reader engaged. The fantasy
descriptions are good and not completely "out there" like other fantasy novels can be. They are
relevant and increase the level of enjoyment. The plot and characterizations are simple but are
improved by the action and the fantasy elements. The relationships among the characters are touched
upon only slightly, leaving some questions about what has happened in their past and what will
happen in their futures.
Night of Demons is a great story and will be enjoyed by many, including non-fantasy readers.
