Police procedural plus supernatural happenings equal Department 18 by the writing team known as Maynard Sims. MOTHER OF DEMONS is the fifth book in this series. This novel far exceeded my expectations – you know how cops are with the paranormal usually. One believes, one doesn’t and after awhile it gets irritating. Well, Department 18 knows the paranormal is real. They’ve fought demons, seen ESP in action and don’t need to be told twice that a house is haunted. I found that refreshing and very enjoyable.
In the tale we have a set of twins, a brother and sister born three minutes apart. The girl, Alice, is fascinated with the Greek gods and believes herself to be one of them. It doesn’t hurt that she has learned to open her mind and access the hidden powers of the brain that we all have buried.
These are all stand alone books and can be read in any order. This one did make reference to a couple of very minor happenings from the past but it shouldn’t affect the reading enjoyment of the other novels. I don’t normally read series out of order, I’m funny that way, but it seems it really doesn’t matter here. So pick up any of the Department 18 books and enjoy one! Amazon will release MOTHER OF DEMONS on August 4, 2015. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
