Devon March matches wits and wizardry against a five-hundred-year-old evil in Demon Witch, the spine-tingling sequel to Sorcerers of the Nightwing
Long before the days of Madman Jackson Muir, a witch named Isobel the Apostate made war upon her fellow sorcerers, the noble order of the Nightwing. Backed by an army of bloodthirsty demons, she became the most feared woman in all of Europe, even challenging King Henry VIII for the throne of England. Burned at the stake for her crimes, Isobel vowed to return and conquer the world.
She kept her word. And now that she is back, the only person who can prevent hell on earth is fourteen-year-old Devon March.
In Demon Witch, the second thrilling installment of the Ravenscliff Series, Devon must summon all of his strength and courage to fight the evil Isobel and her demon horde, who aim to open the Hellhole beneath Ravenscliff and free the beasts within. As Devon's Nightwing powers grow and he discovers more of the secrets of his past, life at Ravenscliff takes another unu-sual turn when a long-lost member of the family returns -- with a beautiful and charming surprise. This new arrival will put Devon's blossoming relationship with Cecily to the test, and challenge his friendships with D.J., Alexander, and even his mentor, Rolfe -- all of whom he will need to thwart the diabolical plans of Isobel.
In a battle that takes him from modern-day Ravenscliff to Tudor England and back again, Devon March must unleash the Nightwing power within him and call upon friendships in the strangest of places to stand against an evil that has waited five centuries for revenge. For at Ravenscliff, friends come in all sizes and shapes -- and enemies are everywhere.
"Each chapter is an earned cliff-hanger....Sophisticated readers will guess at some of what is coming, but they will have fun reading the story through. It is great for fans of Potter and Buffy alike." Timothy Capehart, VOYA
When we last saw 14-year-old Devon March, he had seemingly vanquished his nemesis, the terrifying demon Jackson Muir, and settled back into life at creepy Ravenscliff with his guardian, Amanda Crandall, and her lovely daughter, Cecily. But as Cecily and Devon's relationship intensifies, an irresistible new female guest at Ravenscliff causes some obstacles. The guest, Morgana, is none other than a succubus, a female demon who gains control over men with her irresistible charms. It is up to Devon to stop Morgana, a creature more powerful than any he has encountered before.
The page-turning Demon Witch takes readers more deeply into the fascinating history of Ravenscliff and the Nightwing that was introduced in Book I, Sorcerers of the Nightwing.
