This is LOST SOULS, the latest book in the Demon Trappers series which will be published 7 December, 2021. It was going to be earlier but with the return of the rights of the first four books and our move, it got pushed back a bit. So what is this book about? Read on to find out.
For readers of the DT series, Simon Adler has elicited a variety of reactions. Some liked him, some thought he was ho-hum and others really hated on him (mostly because of his actions toward Riley in the first three books). Let's be blunt: Simon was a total prig, a self-righteous guy who thought he had it wired because he was so religious. He was judgmental and way too stuffy. I'm sure we've all met someone like that along the line.
WARNING! Below are SPOILERS if you haven't read the first three books
Then he nearly died at the claws of a Gastro-Fiend. That'd shake up anyone, but for someone like Simon it was the ultimate wake-up call. When he realized he'd been played by Sartael (the Fallen angel who wanted to take over Lucifer's job), he spiraled downward. As we saw over the course of the next few books, he realized exactly how awful he'd been and was afraid he'd lost his faith forever.
But Simon rebuilt his life, and his faith, and now he's Hell's worst enemy.
The back cover copy:
As Atlanta's lay exorcist, Simon Adler keeps innocent souls safe from Hell. He’s good at his job, so good that Lucifer wants him gone. When a powerful fiend kidnaps three teens, Simon is tricked into bargaining his own soul to save them. Even worse, none of his demon trapping friends can help him. This time Simon’s truly on his own.
Or is he?
Katia Breman’s unexpected arrival in Atlanta is either a godsend, or part of the Prince’s infernal plan. Trust doesn't come easy for this troubled demon trapper from Kansas, and now she’s stuck in a big city she doesn’t know, fighting Hellspawn she’s never seen before. Right or wrong, Katia will have to take a stand. If she sides with Simon Adler, someone she loves will die. If she betrays him, they’re all facing eternity in Hell.
Not to worry, Riley, Beck and all your favorite characters are in this book, and they all have a role to play. But this is truly Simon Michael David Adler's story. I'm so thrilled he allowed me to share it with you.
Chapters 1 and 2 will be posted tomorrow. Here's the links for Amazon, Kobo and iBooks to Pre-Order SOULS (at the bottom of the page).
