The Cracked Altar
The Grand Mage of Caragol is the most dangerous man in the realm, so when Kerstin steals his spellbook right out of his tower, she lights up a firestorm of trouble. An army sweeps through the city of Klomm, but countless lives are a petty sum for such great power. With the spellbook, Kerstin can deal with the villainous Count Olgris, and the unspeakable horrors conjured by the Grand Mage. But she is dancing on a spider’s thread.
Hell shouldn’t terrify a demon, but Jay Adams can’t think of a worse fate. Life in a sweltering abyss is enough to drive anyone insane, but unless he can tempt another human to sin, Hell is exactly where he will end up. Manipulating one girl shouldn’t be a problem, but things aren’t as simple as he expects. His assignment, Devon, wants nothing to do with him. She has more important things to deal with—like graduating high school and getting away from her alcoholic father. But the harder Jay tries to get close to her, the more his feelings grow. Loving his assignment can’t end well. Not when it means dragging her down a path to damnation.
