What is unleashed is a centuries old demon that uses Ley lines to hide and move around, causing mayhem. Robert heads up a team that has the single brief of find and destroy the demon. It has hidden in a luxury apartment block in the city. They search every room, battling demons and creatures as they do so, before they encounter the demon in the basement - a supernatural cathedral, hollowed out and inhabited by demons. En route the team faces and fights terrible creatures and dangers that kills many of them. The building is as much the enemy as the things that inhabit it. THE EIGHTH WITCH novel Four hundred years ago six of the seven Yardley sisters - all witches - were systematically hunted down and killed. The seventh lived long enough to give birth to a daughter. Now, centuries later, that daughter has resurfaced in the town of Ravensbridge, more powerful than her mother or aunts ever were. She has honed her powers, can change shape at will, and has only one ambition - to bring her family back from the dead to seek vengeance against the descendants of all who slaughtered them. Ravensbridge once lived in fear of the seven Yardley sisters, but they have yet to experience the terror of... the Eighth Witch. Robert Carter is on vacation. He should have known better. Evil never takes a holiday. WHAT PEOPLE SAY "The Eighth Witch (is) a consistently entertaining blend of supernatural horror and British drawing room mystery," Publishers Weekly "Grab the novel and read on to discover the case of The Eighth Witch, in all its' beauty and horror." Night Owl "I sure would not want to mess with the eighth witch. She was mean. This book would make a good movie." Fallen Angel "Wow, what a book. This is one truly frightening tale. Maynard & Sims hit his one (Black Cathedral) out of the park." FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND "Once again Maynard & Sims has contrived to create a powerful work of fiction, (Black Cathedral) which reminds me of one of those nightmares that make you glad to wake up and find out it was just a dream." HorrorWorld "As a long-time reader of horror fiction I promise I'm not squeamish but, believe me, this book (Black Cathedral)is terrifying, the avalanche of emotions and the flow of adrenaline will carry you on" Mario Guslandi "Maynard and Sims books just keep getting better and better, and Night Souls might just be their best yet." FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND "Maynard and Sims give us a fresh story altogether here, one that I highly recommend. The only problem I have with the book is that it ended... of all their books, this one (Night Souls) is by far my favorite." Horror Review "For the official record, this is not a book (Night Souls) for the squeamish. There's gore, sex, sex-gore, and gore-sex. Never too much, it's dished out tapas-size, each a delectable treat that serves the overall narrative of the story." Shroud Magazine
