gun and her bank account the only things she truly believes in.
We meet Detective Holden, shortly before she begins working on her

raped and killed. As Kyma’s soul leaves her body, a demon being called
by a coven of dark witches at nearby Prospect Park, is drawn to the

death. The price? The dying woman’s soul. Kyma gives it gladly to
ensure the man who killed her pays dearly.
At the crime scene, Jennifer becomes possessed by Fury Abatu. Hosts
usually die a violent death within weeks of the initial possession.

and her very soul – something she’s not sure she even believes in – to
rid herself of the dark force surrounding her and her friends.
Can Jennifer be saved from the demon? Will she be able to find the
faith to believe in something greater than herself and her material

Jennifer is an atheist, because what God could allow the things she has experienced and witnessed? Perfect for the taking, a fury from Hell invades her body and feeds off the control he has over her. Abatu is no fantasy, he is the vilest of demons and what he makes Jennifer do without her knowledge will set off a crime spree that goes beyond heinous. Detective Holden and her team are assigned to stop this monster; unaware that this is no human and that one of the hunters just may also be the prey.
What is happening to Jennifer? Why is she having blackouts, why does she taste blood in her mouth? Meanwhile, Abatu sits back and prepares for his next meal, using Jennifer as his chef, waitress and clean up staff. His new host will not live forever and he must use her to his best advantage. Only the fear of going insane has Jennifer sharing her fears with a fellow officer and best friend, who, besides being full of sass, is a member of a powerful Wiccan group.
