“It’s a whole hive of the things,” Jeremiah whispered. The auchrim
merely stared at them, unmoving. Through the enveloping mist, they were
strangely androgynous. Multiple copies of the original, a perfect similacra of
Alastore.

            The creatures parted, making
way for a lone figure to step forward. Well, if it wasn’t the original himself.

            Alastore was dressed
impeccably in steel gray trousers and a black dress shirt. His black hair was
swept away from his face and slicked back. He looked every bit the gentleman,
from the sharp, patrician features, all the way to the tips of his black Gucci
loafers.

            He was the proverbial wolf
in sheep’s clothing.

            Squeezing between Callum
and Amy, Isla moved to stand in front of her friends. Jeremiah and Marduk
flanked her on either side, bracing for the worst.

            While the three of them
knew exactly what they were dealing with, the rest of the searchers had been
left in the dark. Callum’s gruff voice echoed in the cavern.

            “Just who in the hell
is this joker?”

            Fiddling
with his diamond cufflink, Alastore raised an eyebrow and his lips quirked in a
half smile. Rich, disembodied laughter bounced around the recesses of the cave.

            Legio
nomen mihi est, quia multi sumus
,” came the quiet answer.

            “What?
What did he say?”

            Jere
cleared his throat and flicked a nervous glance behind him at Callum. “He
said ‘My name is Legion, for we are many’.”

            “Demon
that quotes the Bible. Cute,” Amy said.

            Alastore
glided closer to where Isla stood, causing Jeremiah to surge forward. He was
stayed by a calm hand on his arm.

            “It
was generous of you, witch, to bring us all of these extra souls. I can assure
you, they will be put to good use.” The demon smiled his gruesome,
serrated smile, and actually winked at her. Winked. This time Jeremiah
was the one who had to restrain her from going for his throat.

            After a
brief moment of stillness, Alastore executed a crisp about face and walked back
to his minions who, again, made way for him. Just as he passed the front ranks,
he paused and turned his head toward the auchrim closest to him.

            His
voice was as gentle as it was deadly when he spoke.

            “Take
them.”

Paranormal
Romance

Title: Fire on the Island

Author:
J.K. Hogan



Date to be Published: 8/2/12
Publisher: Sapphire Publishing



 
Synopsis: 

 

“She who
wields the mark is the barrier between man and monster.

She is the
daughter of gods, the mother of man, protector of all.

Vigilati
Usque Ad Mortem”

All Isla
Macallen wanted was a simple existence on her little Scottish island, free from
her

mother’s
insanity and the prying eyes of neighbors. What she got was embroiled in a war
for the

souls of
mankind. A war of good versus evil, of witches versus demons, and Isla learns
that she

alone can
end it.

Dr.
Jeremiah Rousseau was a self-proclaimed nomad, traveling the world researching

paranormal
phenomena. He doesn’t expect his research to lead him to Scotland, and to the

woman who
will turn his world upside down.

Together
with a facetious shapeshifting animal spirit guide, Jeremiah and Isla discover
that she is

part of an
ancient bloodline bred to protect the gateways between the human world and the
spirit

world, to
keep evil demons from destroying them. They must find the key to defeating
Alastore,

the demon
king, and closing the gate before Samhain, when the veil between the worlds is
lifted.

Alastore
does everything in his power to eliminate them but, unbeknownst to all of them,
Isla is

the only
one with the ability to stop him for good.

My Review

To be honest the story is more a 3.5 but after careful consideration I felt there was enough to bump it up to a 4 instead of dropping it down to a 3.

The story is compelling. The characters sometimes fall short but the story keeps you interested enough to keep reading. The Paranormal is many ways in this story as you have witches, shape shifters, and demons. Good Vs Evil. And the whole I didn’t know I was a witch is a great theme.

I enjoy watching those come into their powers and the adventure that causes them to realize the truth about what they are. Or at least peek into it.

I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2 of the series. And maybe even an autographed copy of book one if J K Hogan would let me 😉 No pressure though lol.

A great story that you’ll love or love to hate. Either way you won’t put it down.
