Daniel Graven needs to escape his past, and Adelaide — the city of churches — seems like the perfect place for forgiveness. But the city’s darker side ensnares him when a demon murders a serial killer to save Daniel’s life.
Marked as prey for the purity of his soul, Daniel is stalked by a demon hell-bent on corrupting him. Losing everything he loves is the first horrifying test and he must outwit his demon in a fight for his afterlife, before his faith crumbles along with the lives scattered behind him.
One life — long ended — means more than his own. The soul of a sinful girl latches onto him but the deeper their connection grows, the more terrified Daniel becomes of the demon pulling the strings in the darkness … and where those strings will lead.
Sick of dancing to the devil’s tune, Daniel becomes the hunter.
Or so he thinks.
