Synopsis:
As the modern world establishes itself and pushes the supernatural into the shadows, the supernatural fights back.

An ominous vision and the discovery of a gruesome corpse lead seventeen year-old Sarah Engelmann into a terrifying encounter with the supernatural in 1913 Salem, Massachusetts.
With help from Alex, an attractive Greek immigrant, Sarah sets out to track the evil to its source, never guessing that she will take on aconspiracy involving not only a 900-year vampire, but also a demon-loving Puritan warlock, disgruntled Egyptian gods, and an immortal sorcerer, all on a quest to recover the holy trumpet of the Archangel Gabriel. Relying on the wisdom of an elderly vampire hunter, Sarah’s rabbi father, and her own disturbing visions, Sarah must fight a millennia-old battle between unspeakable forces, where the ultimate prize might be herself.

MY THOUGHTS: 
First off… LOOK at the cover!! I love it! It definitely grabs your attention and screams READ ME!! AS for the reading the book itself… this is NOT for the faint of heart! Gavin’s writing is very detailed and can be gruesome! However this is a great read, keeps you thinking, questioning, and the pages turning! This is a unique dark and twisted tale, with a surprise ending! I would definitely recommend this book to fans of horror and paranormal. I am hoping there might be a sequel (*hint*hint*)!
