 Book Description

Jonathan Steel is a demon hunter by trade, taking out demons with revenge as his motivator. The demons have taken away people he has loved, including the one woman who could have revealed his past to him. He has already defeated two demons, but he knows there are eleven more out there. If he does not go after them, they will come for him. Now saddled with protecting both his new partner and his mentor's nephew, Steel returns to Louisiana, where he must move into a house full of horrifying memories. Meanwhile, Vivian Darbonne, a powerful demon who just lost her husband to Steel, embarks on a desperate search for a mysterious artifact called the Ark of the Demon Rose- just as a new evil cult rises from the darkness and threatens to engulf the world in chaos. As seats of power are covertly altered within the government, Steel knows that in order to defeat the cult, he must first find an ancient chest that holds the secret to defeating the eleventh demon and, most importantly, power over the Council of Darkness. In this third installment of the Jonathan Steel Chronicles, Jonathan Steel and his colleagues once again must attempt to stop a demonic foe before chaos is unleashed on the world!

~My Impressions~

This is the 3rd book in the Chronicles of Jonathan Steel series. I did not get a chance to read the first two, but after reading this one I am definitely going back and buying the first two.  I am officially hooked. I am not sure how this series escaped my attention, but I am glad it’s on my radar now. Who does not love a book chalked full of demon hunters, demon possessed people, love, chaos, murder, and secrets all wrapped up in a Christian theme blanket? 

This book had it all for me.  The characters are well developed, the story is engaging and filled with suspense, each page holds marvelous imagery and best of all there is more to come! A great plot that kept the story moving along that is plausible (depending upon your personal beliefs) and suspenseful right up till the end. Jonathan Steel, demon hunter, is the hero in this book. He risks life and limb to protect those he cares about while fulfilling his destiny to defeat the cult of the Council of Darkness. He leads you on a wonderful journey in search of a ancient chest that holds the power to defeating the eleventh demon and gives the holder control over the Council of Darkness. The book reads almost like a detective novel leaving you trying to look for clues and fit pieces together as you go. I adored the antagonists in the book. Chaos and Vivian is just two of the characters you want to see destroyed. They are both the epitome of evil and very well wrote. There is a great variety of discovery you get to do in this story that keeps your blood pumping and has you flipping through pages as fast as you can read. 

I cannot recommend this book enough and cannot wait to get my hands on the first 2. Hopefully I will be all caught up before book 4 hits the shelves.
