The demon was taking quick puffs of air through its mouth, its laser red eyes staring up at nothing. Black blood dripped from its tongue onto its neck. Riley forced herself to her feet and, with fumbling hands, broke open the seal on the steel bag.
How do I get this thing inside?
In the end, she kept jamming the fiend’s legs, body, and arms into the bag, like stuffing a pillowcase with foul-smelling fur. The thing stank like sulfur and rotten meat, making her stomach roil and acid singe her throat. She worked left-handed as the right was bleeding, waves of pain telegraphing up her arm.
With incredible effort, she locked down the two clamps that secured the demon inside the bag. She’d actually done it — caught her first Grade Three Hellspawn.
As you can tell from this excerpt, this book is intense. It’s a pretty interesting premise, with some unique paranormal elements. Lots of fun. Well, maybe fun isn’t quite the correct word, but you know what I’m getting at.
