Daemon Seer

Ten years ago, the daemon Talion saved Lu’s life, and now he demands repayment—she must bear him a child.

AS A TEENAGER, LU Darlington attracted national attention when she and her friend Lisa escaped a sadistic killer known as the Professor of Death. She never told anyone about the daemon who saved her life that day.

Ten years later, Lisa shows up at Lu’s door, fleeing another psychopath stalker. But Lisa’s not the only one seeking Lu after all this time. One by one, the daemons descend:

Voracious Chama. Sinister Black Claw. Beautiful Talion.

Chama wants Lu, but Talion claims her. The women of Lu’s family have always belonged to Talion—and they’ve suffered deeply for it. As the human threat draws closer, Talion demands that Lu bind herself to him in a harrowing ceremony that will destroy an innocent man and change her forever—but might save Lisa’s life.

Can she navigate the violent intrigues of the daemon world without being consumed by its terrible demands?

Daemon Seer is terrifyingly brilliant — dark twisted and totally taboo. Maddox’s take on possession and free will is terrifying and uncomfortably hot. Pavarti K. Tyler
