Publisher's Summary

The epic new thriller continues. Book two in the mind-blowing new supernatural thriller from best-selling author Derek Landy, creator of international sensation Skulduggery Pleasant.

Reeling from their bloody encounter in New York City at the end of Demon Road, Amber and Milo flee north. On their trail are the Hounds of Hell - five demonic bikers who will stop at nothing to drag their quarries back to their unholy master. Amber and Milo's only hope lies within Desolation Hill - a small town with a big secret; a town with a darkness to it, where evil seeps through the very floorboards. Until, on one night every year, it spills over onto the streets, and all hell breaks loose. And that night is coming....

Better than the first

This story is just getting better, and the voice acting is so good. Can't wait to listen and read the next book in the series.

it wasn't as good unfortunately

it's a huge change from landy:s previous series. very adult, quite disturbing in places and seemed like a rough draft rather than a complete story. Katherine Griffith's voice acting is amazing tho, and I don't even like to listen to women's voices much.
