Raven’s Peak (World on Fire – 1) by Lincoln Cole
A quiet little mountain town is hiding a big problem. When the townsfolk of Raven’s Peak start acting crazy, Abigail Dressler is called upon to discover the root of the evil affecting people. She uncovers a demonic threat unlike any she’s ever faced and finds herself in a fight just to stay alive.
Abigail rescues Haatim Arison from a terrifying fate and discovers that he has a family legacy in the supernatural that he knows nothing about. Now she’s forced to protect him, which is easy, but also to trust him if she wants to save the townsfolk of Raven’s Peak. Trust, however, is something hard to have for someone who grew up living on the knife’s edge of danger.
Can they discover the cause of the town’s insanity and put a stop to it before it is too late?
We start this story with Reverend Arthur Vangeest. He has been locked away for five years feeling horrible about the loss of Abigail. But then he learns that Abigail is alive and not possessed by a demon. Then we skip to Abigail. She is a demon slayer that works for the organization called the Council. She is wracked with guilt over the death of Arthur and what happened when she was possessed. But she learns that Arthur is alive, banished to Hell, and plans to rescue him even though she has been warned to not pursue Arthur.
In the meantime, Abigail is sent to protect Haatim, the son of a Council member. Together they are to travel to Raven’s Peak to figure out what is making the people act strange. This is going to be a crash course in heritage for Haatim and in how to fight demons. But what happens with it looks like Abigail just walked both Haatim and her into a trap.
I loved this story. This is not your normal demon slayer story, there is action, amazing fight scenes, and a kick butt story. It is fast paced and I had a hard time putting the book down, I just had to find out what was going to happen next. I loved Abigail, she keeps beating herself up over Arthur and the possession and just won’t let herself move on. Haatim is this blogger that gets a crash course in fighting demons and picks it up quickly.
If you are looking for a kick butt demon slayer story make sure to check out Raven’s Peak. I can’t wait for book 2.
