Beyond the boundaries of our own Mortal World lies the Unseen Realm; a supernatural domain inhabited by entities that prey on humans. Mankind knows them as demons and when the barrier between the two worlds is weakened they can manifest, wreaking chaos and destruction... ‘You want to know what it will be like if the demon takes a host? It will be as though the sun has gone out.’ A hundred years ago a demon broke through the boundary between the Unseen Realm and the Mortal World. One man sacrificed himself to bind it, but when the wards he conjured are weakened, the demon’s influence begins to be felt again. Believing in demons seems out of this world but when Aidan Morgan’s best friend commits suicide, Aidan begins to question the truth behind the folklore. Confronted by the possibility that an external force compelled John to take his life, Aidan is thrown into a world of supernatural forces. Fearing he will be the next victim he knows of only one person he can turn to for help. As the demon’s power grows, its influence spreads and Aidan is forced to confront his own past as he and his allies race to prevent the demon’s final manifestation – but will any of them live long enough to be able to stop it? The Demon’s Call is the first part in the Dark Places sequence. It is an exciting fantasy fiction that taps into the deep core of folklore and legends that exist at the heart of the British and Celtic psyche. Elements of forgiveness and redemption are exposed to give the story more depth and ground them in reality.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (December 2017)

A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—Year One is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives...

It began on New Year’s Eve.

The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.

Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.

As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.

In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.

The end has come. The beginning comes next.
