In the second thrilling instalment in John Birmingham's bestselling Dave Hooper series, a dragon brings down the Vice President's plane, a monster army is camped outside Omaha and an empath demon springs an undercover operation in New York.
Two bright geometric shapes, metallic flashes picked out in the morning sun, moving impossibly fast and straight amidst the visual clutter and chaos of forest and rock ...
'Is it dragons, Dave, is that what it is? Because I'm not ready for dragons ...'
New Orleans was just the beginning. New and different demons are breaking through all over America, and Dave Hooper has a new enemy with more guile and guts than the celebrity superhero, still stumbling in his role as Champion. While his agent fields offers for movies and merchandise, Dave is tasked with ending a siege in Omaha, saving his friends and deciphering the underrealms' plans to take over the earth.
As an ancient and legion evil threatens to destroy mankind, Dave has to decide what kind of man he wants to be and the nature of his role in this new world. He may not be the hero humanity deserves, but he's the only one we've got.
