Editorial Reviews

Review

“Man, can this guy write. (He) has the power to introduce you all over again to the pleasures of reading good prose.” (Ed Gorman)

“A terrific story-teller.” (Graham Joyce)

“Once again Richards confirms his superb storytelling skill and refreshes the pleasure of savouring fine prose.” (SF Site)

From the Back Cover

Centuries ago, the Salem witches founded the village of Raine's Landing, then cloaked it in magic to hide it from sight. Many of their descendants still practice the supernatural arts—and no one who lives here can ever leave.

Now evil has breached its boundaries once again . . .

A serial killer with a corrupt and twisted soul, Cornelius Hanlon has freely entered Raine's Landing, undeterred by the ancient magical safeguards. And when he chooses the town's oldest adept as his first victim, the maniac inadvertently gains possession of a powerful "gift" more terrible than anything he could have sadistically dreamed.

Ex-town cop Ross Devries and his Harley-riding sometime-partner, Cassandra Mallory, have no supernatural abilities. But they are the last line of defense in this village of secrets and shadows—facing a psychopath who now wields the power to bend the living and the dead to his will.

This is the second book by the author set in the town of Raines Landing. It is a place that has been cursed so that anyone who lives there can never leave, and only very few people can actually find it. The residents range from the normal families to the powerful magic users. The main character is Ross Devries the sherrif. He is a regular cop, not a spell caster who is in charge of keeping things in town as normal as can be expected in such a place. This book deals with the arrival of a serial killer on the run from the FBI who gains a powerful magic item that allows him to make his twisted dreams an actuality. The characters are good, and the story interesting. I was waiting for the follow up to Dark Rain and found this to be a good read. Hoping that there are more to follow.

It took me a lot of chapters to get the feel for this Tony Richards. This was my first book he authored. I had a lot of trouble with Dark Rain because of incomplete sentences and getting into the grove of the style of fragmented thoughts. I've read a lot of male-point-of view books - mostly h. hurakami, palahniuk, and N. Baker. After a few years of some urban fantasy series, a friend recommended this one. Very interesting premise, and he is a very good story teller. He dropped a lot of the incomplete sentences and thoughts, although in this one we know Ross better. Great job!
I will pick up his non-fantasy genre at some point.

Night of Demons Matches the Original

Ever since I read Dark Rain, I've been looking forward to reading its sequel. I even said so in my review of that book. Now, I've had my chance and I wasn't disappointed. Night of Demons can be best described as Law and Order meets the X-files, and then it escalates into sheer terror and mayhem. Once more, Tony Richards takes us back to Raine's Landing for a few fantastic days in the lives of detective Ross DeVries and the magically-inclined inhabitants of that locked-away town.

The story begins like a police procedural with serial killer Cornelius Hanlon, dubbed the "Shadow Man," escaping from Boston police, taking a wrong turn and ending up in Raine's Landing. His first act upon arriving is to murder one of the town's leading adepts and steal a mystical wand--the Wand of Dantiere. Created by a madman, no one is aware it was created to bring about the Apocalypse and can only bond with someone who is insane. In Hanlon, it meets its soulmate, and soon more deaths ensue, ordinary people turning into psychotic killers who are reluctantly gunned down by the Landing's police. When Hanlon joins forces with Millicent Tollburn, who has her own reasons for hating the townsfolk, the crimes, which up until this point are merely those of people
running amok, become full-fledged horror, and before it ends, a rift in dimensions showers thousands of demonic creatures upon the town as Hanlon's version of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse thunder down its streets.

Enter Lauren Brennan, Detective Lieutenant of the Boston Police, a woman so obsessed with tracking down Hanlon, she ignores the subliminal warnings to stay away from the Landing.
