"A modern fantasy with a touch of noir, a dash of detective thriller, and a sprinkling of humor throughout. A really fun debut novel."
Janzen Robinson is a man lost between two worlds. Formerly a low-level aid for a group of do-gooding heroes who fought against a supernatural evil lurking in every shadow, five years later he’s a package courier going through the daily grind, passing time at a hole-in-the-wall bar, and living in a tiny, run-down apartment on the south side of Cleveland, Ohio.
Then fate (or a case of bad timing) brings him face to face with a door that’s got his old life written all over it, and he has to make a choice. Live a normal, if mundane, life working at a dead-end job. Or, return to a life he’d left behind, thrust into the role of protector, a role once reserved for those he’d lost years ago, and face down the greatest threat to come to our world in a century.
From the ancient recesses of unyielding darkness known as The Abyss, a creature has been summoned: The Stalker, a predator whose real name is forbidden by those in the know; a bastardization of the natural order; an incredible blend of dark magic and primal tenacity. Its single-minded mission? Ending the life of a quiet, unassuming witch.
If he chooses to get involved and try to save the witch, Janzen will have to journey through the magical underbelly of Cleveland—yes, Cleveland—and stay one step ahead of the hell-bent monster. He’ll need to discover The Stalker’s purpose, relying on old friends, a quiet stranger, his own wits and daring, if he hopes to succeed. It’s a nightmare that may cost him his life and end the world.
