For months, socially withdrawn Dr. Brent Carson has been reading about women being abducted throughout the city, the most recent article revealing how all of them may have been practitioners of witchcraft. Out of curiosity, Brent decides to personally investigate what is going on, but is distracted when four friends move to the city, all of whom he knows to be werewolves – except for Angela Dane, who is only half.

Angela is an energetic, talented and very spirited girl. She is extremely close and loyal to her friends, but the first moment Brent sees Angela, there is something about her he finds disturbing. He cannot understand why, but his first reaction towards her is one of hatred, inexplicably feeling as if she shouldn’t even be alive.

That night, Angela is attacked by a psychotic demon, one who has been stealing paranormal beings for centuries and taking them to hell for his personal version of trafficking. The demon almost claims her as his newest prize, only to have his interests quickly switch to Brent the moment he learns of his true identity.

***Misty – #NerdGirlShadow’s  Review***

 This book is great! Focusing on Dr. Brent Carson, who has taken it upon himself to personally investigate the abduction of women throughout the city, the story winds through a mystery that you won’t soon forget. The supernatural element is introduced into the story when Brent realizes all of the missing women are witches. After that, hold on tight.
A real page turner, Demon’s Prize was a surprising read for me. I didn’t know I was such a little chicken! After my first night reading, I realized my reading would have to be during the day. Very creepy, but so much fun! Demonic type stuff usually freaks me out, but this book has an interesting array of supernatural concoctions that keep you glued to each page… including werewolves! My favorite!
The author is extremely creative and has a real command of language. The characters are well constructed and very likeable. Brent was absolutely fantastic, a wonderfully written character. The story flows well and the twists will keep you wanting more. This new author is definitely one to watch. I’m looking forward to her future works!
