When a demon lord finds himself attracted to a mere human, the world is sure to be thrown into chaos and mayhem. Soul-Strung by Rachel Hobbs, the second book in Stones of Power, makes the readers privy to this incredible action, complicated passion, and intriguing wit. Drayvex, the demon lord, knew nothing about human emotion — or any emotion other than fury — until his paths crossed with Ruby. To say that she rocked his world would be an understatement of all time. Where the deadliest of demons trembled in his presence, Ruby challenged him with her clever remarks and unwavering defiance. He found it impossible to peel himself away from her thoughts. So, when another demon, Saydor, set his eyes on Ruby, the hell was sure to be unleashed. Destroying Saydor wasn’t a difficult task for Drayvex; however, finding him was proving to be a headache. To save her life, Drayvex must find the object that can turn back time. But, like most things, this wasn’t going to be a walk in the park; not when his sworn enemy, a fae, was protecting the said object.
The Hangman: Vengeance by Dee Rose is the tenth and final book in The Hangman Universe series. After being deceived and thrown into an alternate universe, the Hangman managed to find his way back to the earth. This time, though, he has decided to focus all his time and energy on vengeance against “the good guys.” Meanwhile, the underworld has a new demon lord: Lord Leechadon. Although his dream of conquering the earth matches his predecessor’s, his strategies are quite different. Before attacking the earth, he has cooked up a plan to remove these obstacles from his path: The Death Brothers (Tom Padilla and Jericho Cain), The Grand Librarian (Alexander Merryweather), Purgatory’s guardian (BA), Susan Taki, and the Hangman. The beauty of his plan is that instead of spending his own energy in killing the so-called good guys, he will use Hangman to destroy them. Later, he will snatch away Hangman’s rings and conquer earth. As demons, zombies, vampires, and a witch begin their assault on the good guys, they struggle to survive and stick together. Is this the end of the good guys? Or, is there a hope still?
