Greedy, arrogant and fearless in his pursuit of gratification, Gerald Evans had few boundaries. But when he was careless with the money and wife of a major crime figure, consequences came in the form of underworld assassins. Although their first attempt to end Gerald's life was successful, doctors and an angelic spirit are able to pull him back from the death that embraced his body and soul. It's then that Gerald's family learns of the magnitude of his corruptions and also of the horrific story he relates about his journey to Hell, and the tortures he endured there during his brief but chilling death. Fearful of ever returning to that terrible place, Gerald is determined to repent his ways, but the killers are just as determined to complete their job. Suspicious of Gerald's story and intentions, his small and vulnerable family will reluctantly put themselves in harm's way to protect a man that has tested their love and violated their trust. At the head of the family, Gerald's brother-in-law, Jayme Harrison, will find himself caught between the influences of Heaven and Hell, assassins and police, while trying to keep the fractured family unified and the man he dislikes alive. Now with lives and souls at stake, they all have good reason to fear something in the dark.

In this highly atmospheric mystery, Ruth Galloway—“a captivating amateur sleuth” (Louise Penny)—and DCI Nelson investigate a murder in a medieval Italian town where dark secrets are buried as deep as bones. It’s not every day that you’re summoned to the Italian countryside on business, so when archaeologist Angelo Morelli asks for Ruth Galloway’s help identifying bones found in the tiny hilltop town of Fontana Liri, she jumps at the chance to go, bringing her daughter along with her for a working vacation. Upon arriving, she begins to hear murmurs of Fontana Liri’s strong resistance movement during World War II and senses the townspeople are dancing around a deeply buried secret. But how could that be connected to the ancient remains she’s been studying? Ruth is just beginning to get her footing in the dig when she’s thrown off-guard by the appearance of DCI Nelson. And when Ruth’s findings lead them to a modern-day murder, their holidays are both turned upside down, and they race to find out what darkness is lurking in this seemingly picturesque town.

Carpathians are an immortal race of beings with animal instincts and the ability to shape shift. Every Carpathian male is drawn to a life mate: a woman - Carpathian or human - able to provide the light to his darkness. Without her, the beast within slowly consumes the man until turning into a vampire is the only option.' Natalya Shonski is a vampire hunter, descended from a revered line of Carpathians known as the Dragonseekers and the most powerful mage in history. She hates and fears both vampires and Carpathians alike and has spent her life fighting them. Carpathian Vikirnoff van Schreider is dangerously close to turning vampire when he discovers Natalya and realises that she is his lifemate. But Natalya is unlike any other Carpathian he has ever known - dangerous in her own right, she refuses to let him fight her battles, and she infuriates him with her cheerful disregard of his demands. But a sinister, mysterious power is after Natalya, and Virkirnoff has to convince her not only to trust him with her heart, but with her life as well.

A massive yet tight story that both shines a light on some mysteries from earlier volumes and reveals deeper mysteries yet. We encounter the artifacts of an ancient race, learn the true story of the ghostly Dwenda and follow three old friends as they face their greatest test yet.
