Hellfire Trilogy Book One

For centuries, the powers of Heaven and Hell have been at war, locked in a perpetual stalemate. Fifty years ago, the war spilled out on Earth and the last modern age of man ended. Humanity now finds itself at the brink of annihilation, barely surviving in small pockets of civilization scattered across the globe. But even in the direst of circumstances, the human spirit lives on.

Now, in this post-apocalypse, humanity has but one choice: resist or die. In order to combat the forces of Hell, man has learned to fight, training from their youth to hunt the demons that threaten their very existence.
Twenty-five years ago, a demon hunter dared rise against an ancient demon family, the Saligia—the Seven Deadly Sins—and was cursed for her defiance. The curse appeared in the guise of an innocent: the huntress’s own daughter, Ardentia, who had been born with a demon soul attached to her own.

In the present day, Ardentia, now grown, seeks to free her mother from her curse by hunting down the demons responsible. But the road ahead will be difficult now that the demon within her has awakened. Trusting him is dangerous, especially when he can turn on her at a moment’s notice. Others have warned her that succumbing to the demon will be her own downfall.

Now Ardentia must decide what she’s willing to lose: her mother’s freedom or herself.


Barnes and Noble

 Hellfire Trilogy Book Two

After defeating the Saligia, Ardentia thought that her journey had come to a close. With her mother’s curse broken, she had hoped for peace at last. Hell had other plans.

Demons have grown bolder; they strike at all hours of the day, laying siege to the borders of the sanctuary towns, and possess humans to get around the wards meant to keep them out. To make matters worse, there is an even greater threat looming on the horizon. A new power has risen in the north, Belial, the first of four Crown Princes of Hell.

The Crown Prince is ruthless—far more powerful than the likes of any demon Ardentia or Noxius have ever faced. He seeks to travel to the four corners of the Earth and free his brothers, Asmodeus, Leviathan, and Ba’al. Should Belial’s plan succeed, Lucifer will rise and the final battle for mankind’s survival will begin.

No one is safe; not even the defenses of the great city of Salvatio can keep the powers of Hell at bay. Belial’s reach is vast, extending deep into the holy city itself. A traitor walks within the walls, tearing Salvatio down from the inside out.

Now, it is a race against the clock, and Ardentia must stop Belial before all is lost. The dangers she must face are greater than they have ever been. She knows the journey alone might kill her, provided the demon does not get around to it first. But even the threat of certain death will not stop her.

Ardentia has but one choice—to brave the hellfire and face Belial, or watch her world be lost to the coming inferno.
