After our vampire-killing hero William McConnellson is laughed out of the Canadian priesthood following his testimonials of dueling with demons and miraculously being resurrected by Christ Himself, it doesn't take much coaxing for William to accept an invitation to return to West By God Virginia and renew his relationship with his fellow evil-conquering acquaintances.
But the supernatural aura surrounding Melas means that not just the "good" can be resurrected on its unhallowed grounds, but evil can also be restored and rear its ugly head. Consequently, William learns that if he is to defeat the demons that have murdered his friends and family (not to mention haunt his every waking and sleeping hour), he must learn the difference between friend and foe - a line that is frighteningly vague in the unworldly universe encompassing Melas.
The author creates his intricately weaved web of mistruths and misconceptions in such a way that the readers become possessed with the hero's quest and soon find themselves wanting to warn William that he is just an unknowing pawn in an evil game being played by back-stabbers and double-dealers, proving once and for all that there is indeed no honor amongst thieves. There are also no rules in games where cheaters rule, but will William realize this before it's too late? His faith, his love, his trust and his resolve will be tested to their human limits before this inhuman end game concludes.
It's not possible to describe too much of the terrifying plot, because it contains so many twists and turns that any amount of revelation may trigger a spoiler and ruin some of the fun for the reader, thus (like William) the reader shall have to place their trust in someone like me to encourage him/her to experience this surprise-laden thriller via my personal recommendation.
Thus, like the harrowing lyrics of one of Johnny Cash's famous songs, join William on his vengeful crusade and sing along with him as he warns: "Go tell that long tongue liar; Go and tell that midnight rider; Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter; Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down."
