Synopsis

Magic is real. Only a handful of natural-born sorcerers can wield its arcane power against demons, foul creatures, and the forces of darkness. These protectors of the powerless are descendants of an elite order. The best magic-users in the world.
 
Unfortunately, Dru isn’t one of them.
 
Sure, she’s got a smidge of magical potential. She can use crystals to see enchantments or brew up an occasional potion. And she can research practically anything in the library of dusty leather-bound tomes she keeps stacked in the back of her little store. There, sandwiched between a pawn shop and a 24-hour liquor mart, she sells enough crystals, incense, and magic charms to scrape by. But everything changes the day a handsome mechanic pulls up in a possessed black muscle car, his eyes glowing red.
 
Just being near Greyson raises Dru’s magical powers to dizzying heights. But he’s been cursed to transform into a demonic creature that could bring about the end of the world.
 
Then she discovers that the Harbingers, seven fallen sorcerers, want to wipe the planet clean of humans and install themselves as new lords of an unfettered magical realm. And when they unearth the Apocalypse Scroll, the possibility of a fiery cosmic do-over suddenly becomes very real. 
 
There’s only one chance to break Greyson’s curse and save the world from a fiery Doomsday – and it’s about to fall into Dru’s magically inexperienced hands....
 

About Laurence MacNaughton

See more books from this Author
In kindergarten, Laurence MacNaughton decided that when he grew up, he wanted to be a scientist. "What kind of scientist?" the teacher asked. "A mad scientist," he declared. "The kind that makes monsters." As it turned out, mad science presented limited career opportunities, so Laurence went on to study criminal psychology instead. Still, he was drawn to fiction of all kinds, from H.P. Lovecraft to Robert B. Parker to William Gibson, so he learned the art of story from an African storyteller and began a lifelong pursuit of writing. Today, he's a professional copywriter, writing coach and author of spooky, high-octane supernatural novels. When he's not busy writing about monsters, Laurence enjoys biking, hiking, cruising car shows and exploring the ghost towns of the Rocky Mountains. He lives in Colorado with his wife and a few too many old cars.

Fantasy Literature

Certainly haunted and demonic cars are staples of the fantasy genre, but the verve and style of these cars, especially Greyson’s car Hellbringer, which has a mind of its own, stood out.
