A sacrifice is necessary.
Two years have passed since Quinn Sullivan vanquished the Demon of Resolution Cove, armed with only Autumn Donnelly’s dagger. Now, new forces conspire to test the Guardian as he is sent to discover who, or what, was behind the suicide of Inspector Green’s son. Little does he expect what awaits for him in the sleepy mountain town of Cranbrook.
Devoid of the Guardian’s protection, Quinn’s fellow RCMP constables are set in a trap they cannot escape as piles of human bones begin turning up. A serial killer is on the loose, searching for a little girl with abilities that will release others of its ilk to rain Hell down on earth.
Armed with only Autumn’s dagger and his courage, Quinn must save those he loves lest they, too, become nothing but bones. To win, the Guardian must make a sacrifice.
For him to succeed, one must fall.
