DARK URBAN FANTASY: The Demonists - Thomas E Sniegoski

Release Date: 07/04/16
Publisher:  Roc


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series, a new dark fantasy series about fighting the worst hell has to offer...

There is more to our world than meets the eye. Exorcist John Fogg and his wife, psychic medium Theodora Knight, know what lurks in the shadows. But even they re not prepared for when an ancient evil prepares to make Earth its battlefield...

After an exorcism goes wrong, Theodora is left catatonic, possessed by countless spirits, and John finds himself on a desperate quest to find a cure for his wife. But Theodora s possession is only one piece of a deadly plot that is threatening the entire world and without John and Theodora s intervention, there is no chance for salvation...


I love to spend my time in a book where I can never be sure whats around the corner, and to be honest Thomas is one of those authors that no matter what he turns his hand to delivers on that promise. The writing is crisp, the characters good fun to hang around and whilst I loved all of them, I now want a book with a certain Gran as the titles principle character..

The plot has a great number of twists linking organisations and people together as well as allowing the characters of each to come to the fore as each players past events war against their professionalism as well as beliefs. All round a cracking read and one that I hope will be a start to a cracking new series. Great fun.
