Host Chronicles: The Devil’s Offspring (Vol. 1) by D L Cox #Fantasy #AmReading #TBR

The lobby seemed deserted except for an elderly receptionist who greeted Sheba when she walked in. The woman led Sheba to a cramped conference room where three middle-aged men awaited her. The men all sat on one side of a long conference table.
The receptionist left and the man in the middle stood and said, “We weren’t expecting a new negotiator.”
Sheba replied, “My employer thought it was time for a fresh perspective.”
“I’m Tony Taylor, and this is,” he nodded to his right, “Sam Keens,” then to his left, “and Tim Mathews.”
The men stood and Sheba shook each of their hands, looking them each in the eyes.
“Have a seat,” Tony told Sheba as he and his partners sat.
Sheba remained standing and cut her eyes at a clock on the wall behind the men. “My employer feels like you’ve smacked him in the face.”
Tony laughed. “I don’t think your client wants to know how it feels for us to slap him in the face. We have very hard hands.”
Sheba scanned the room. “When was the last time this building was used for anything but storage?”
Tony tapped his fingers on the table. “A dead building for a dead situation.”
“I can’t argue with you there,” Sheba said and pulled a silenced .9mm Glock from her handbag.
Before the men could react, she sent a bullet into Tony’s forehead.

In this Urban Fantasy, the devil’s daughter, SALEENA, and her reaper boyfriend, IZZY, elope to earth and seek to overthrow her estranged brother, SIMON CLASH, as the devil’s heir apparent on earth, but Simon is head of a powerful conglomerate, and he’s not going out without a fight. As the rivalry turns bloody, the warring siblings discover the devil has been manipulating their feud to advance his secret agenda and is using them as decoys to draw out a sword-wielding champion of humanity called the HOST, whom must be slain before the devil can unleash a reign of terror on earth.
Legend says the Host will emerge when humanity plunges into hopelessness and despair, and NATHANIEL BRENNER, the young man responsible for delivering a magic sword to the Host, hopes that is soon. Nathaniel has spent the last six years searching for the Host to no avail and has recently seen a drastic rise in demon activity on earth, which he knows could only mean one thing: humanity is running out of time. Saleena and Simon unite to save their own hides, but it may be too late—not only for the devil’s offspring, but for humanity too! The future of humanity hangs in the balance, and Nathaniel is determined to thwart the devil’s plans and find the Host.
