If you like the Shadow Stalker series, you’ll love this. It gives great perspective to the series and insight into Auren’s camping trips. *SPOILER-ish There’s some awesome mind manipulation going on if you were wondering why Auren’s never been told about being a Shadow Stalker before. *SPOILER-end There’s action-packed adventure with demon chasing, mountain climbing and cave exploring. There’s emotional scenes with guilt, anger and pain. And it’s all enclosed into a nice small read. Also if you are curious about Drevin you’ll love the end as there’s some detail on the big bad guy and his evil lair.
Demon Hunt (A Shadow Stalker Prequel Novella)
Auren longs for adventure and a break from her tedious life on Appolia. It’s the start of summer, and she is looking forward to her yearly camping trip with her foster father, Kado. She believes these trips are for fun, but when they arrive on Luten Isle, Kado informs her that she is a shadow stalker, and she is in training.
One morning, Auren decides to take her training into her own hands. She only means to practice seeing the veil to the shadow world, the world of the shadow people and the source of their power. Instead, she opens the veil releasing a demon, a guardian of the shadow world, into the physical world.
With the deadly beast loose, she and Kado don’t have long to hunt it down and return it to where it belongs, or many innocent people could die.
