Mother Of Demons by Maynard Sims [4 stars]

From the Description:

The hunt is on!
Alice Logan has gone missing, and Harry Bailey and Department 18 have been called to help find her. The main suspect is Anton Markos, a satanic cult leader who has a predilection for young women like Alice. Members of Markos’s cult start turning up dead—shredded by what seems to be a wild animal. Is there a madman within the cult? Or is it something far more horrible?
Can Department 18 discover the impossible truth and end the spree of murder, insanity and carnage? Or will they become the prey?

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.

Mother Of Demons is a fast paced and terrifying thrill ride. The fifth installment of the Department 18 series continues to entertain and horrify readers with a well written plot and believable characters. For those who aren't familiar with the Department 18 novels, they focus on a group of paranormal investigators who work for the British government alongside units such as M15. Each book deals with a different supernatural threat. If you haven't read them you should grab them now! In Mother Of Demons you get to catch up with some of the characters from other books as well as meet some new ones. Vi and Harry are two of my favorite characters. I also really liked Jason and Susan. I enjoyed the combination of Greek mythology and police procedure in this story. The Goddess of the hunt has long been a favorite Greek myth. The ending had a twist that I didn't see coming which always makes a story fun for me. Hunt down this 4 star read and enjoy.
