Transported to the far north of Scotland with dozens of others, all yanked from their lives across Britain, Hannah is taken to an isolated compound they call Pandemonium, which is an ultra-secure prison ruled by creatures that should exist only in nightmares - a place no one has survived for more than a few months.
Hundreds of miles away from help, her family's lives at risk if she disobeys any order, Hannah knows the key to surviving her captivity is to bond with strangers and teach them all to refuse to be victims. But, she's running out of time to convince the other captives to take their fight to the black heart of the prison and its inhuman warden; Hannah is yet to discover she is not the only one about to start a war.
In Pandemonium, all Hell is going to break out.
Ten years after nuclear war devastates Britain, Lazarus and his adoptive siblings are flesh and blood to each other; to their victims, they are ruthless killers who should exist only in nightmares. Now their next target, a group of men seemingly made soft by a decade of hiding in underground bunkers, welcome the upcoming attack because they are far from weak. Armed and prepared, they are ready for Lazarus and his family.
After the ensuing violence, lost and alone, Lazarus is desperate to make it through the irradiated wasteland to his clan before their captors reach a new government forming in Dover. Armed only with his axe, Lazarus will stop at nothing to kill the men who would dare threaten his kin.
But, unknown to either side, a terrible secret waits far below Dover Castle, lost for decades in the silent labyrinth of wartime tunnels.
A secret infinitely more dangerous than any killer
At the same time, a handful of others fight their way through a panicked city to reach the building-frantic to make it to loved ones before the device ignites less than fifty miles away.In the frozen instant of the detonation, Kelly, her sister and three strangers are locked in that moment and trapped in the offices.
But they are not alone. An ancient god from the deepest pits in the earth has woken and knows their most private secrets and guilt.
Now, horror takes the form of their darkest dreams to draw sustenance from their terror, and the beast stalking them will dine well.Because everybody is afraid of something.
Four hundred years ago, Benjamin Harwood butchered whoever he saw fit to kill, knowing that sacrificing his murder victims to a demon would keep him safe from eternal punishment.
But now, their agreement has been torn in half and the demon is coming for Harwood’s soul, coming to set him to burn.
Preparing for war, Harwood gathers the worst of the worst, the monsters and murderers he calls friends.
With this group of damned killers, Harwood must return to the crimes of his past and seek help from his most recent prey: a teenage girl whose family he destroyed, a girl with more reason to loathe him than anyone in his life or death.
Only then he can try for a redemption that may be impossible or face a universe of suffering.
But Harwood doesn’t know there is a hole in the floor of the world. And something much worse than the dead is down there...
