When he came home, so did they…
Driven by vengeance, Michael Alexander enlisted in the Army the day after 9/11. Five years later, disillusioned and broken by the horrors he witnessed in Afghanistan, Michael returns home to Georgia seeking to begin a new life. But he didn’t come alone. Something evil followed him, and it’s leaving a path of destruction in its wake.
The police are powerless. The Army has written Michael off. Left to face down a malevolent creature first encountered in the mountains of Afghanistan, he’ll rely on his training, a homeless prophet, and estranged family members from a love lost…
But none of them expected the dragon.
Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden collides with Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter International in this supernatural thriller that goes straight to Hell!

Reader Praise for War Demons:
“I genuinely enjoyed this story. Action went fast and was almost continuous, very little downtime. The main character struggles with PTSD and this comes through in a very genuine way. He’s never presented as reckless or monstrous for it, and it’s handled with compassion and a solid grasp of the condition. This is a story of good versus evil, which I enjoyed; I’m not about shades of gray and moral relativism. There is clear right and wrong here.”
“The novel begins as a tale of supernatural horror, and a sense of deepening dread and menace build up. Yet, it is also a heroic tale: a story about valor, faith and redemption in the face of overwhelming evil. This book combines horror, heroism and action in fashion not to be seen in other modern paranormal tales.”
“This was an incredibly fast read. The author slams the action pedal to the floor and duct tapes it there. Despite the frenetic pacing, the major characters all have a lot of color and life in them.”
