Beth Woodward (Author)

Description

Heaven is hunting Dale Highland.

For ten years, she's been on the run, plagued by violent blackouts and increasingly baffled by a growing array of superpowers--mind control, super strength, enhanced healing abilities.

What Dale doesn't know is that Heaven's greatest bounty hunter, John Goodwin, has been on her trail the whole time. When John finally corners her in New York City, he reveals the source of her powers: her mother was a demon.

They forge an unlikely connection and go on the run. In pursuit are his fellow bounty hunters, a deadly guild of angels known as the Thrones. Their goal: eradicate all demons--which includes Dale. As they flee across New England, Dale delves into the mystery of her own heritage and discovers that she's a key figure in an ancient war between angels and demons.

Only this time, the angels are the bad guys.

Headlong and action-packed, The Demon Within is the first of the four-volume Dale Highland series.

About the Author

Beth Woodward has always had a love for the dark, the mysterious, and all things macabre. She blames her mother for this one: while other kids were watching cartoons, Beth and her mother were watching Unsolved Mysteries together every week. She was doomed from the beginning. At 12, she discovered the wonders of science fiction and fantasy when she read A Wrinkle in Time, which remains the most influential book of her life. Growing up, she was Meg Murray with a dash of Oscar the Grouch. She's been writing fiction since she was six years old; as a cantankerous kid whose family moved often, the fictional characters she created became her friends. As an adult, she's slightly more well adjusted, but she still withdraws into her head more often than is probably healthy. When she's not writing, Beth volunteers at her local animal shelter, attends as many sci-fi/fantasy conventions as she can, and travels as much as time and money will allow. She lives in the Washington, DC, area with her husband and their three cats.

Reviews

"This inventive and exciting tale had me breathlessly flipping the pages--and I loved every minute! Get ready for a sexy, twisty, dangerous ride that crackles with pure awesomeness."
--Carolyn Crane, USA Today bestselling author

"Engaging, old-school urban fantasy. Will appeal to readers hungering for spirited supernatural action with a dash of forbidden romance."
--Jenn Bennett, author of the Arcadia Bell series

"A fast-paced, engaging book. A nice blend of horror and paranormal. Dale Highland is totally my spirit animal."
--Joe Alfano, author of Wicked Little Pixie

"A strong novel and my first five-star [review] of the year."
--Michael D. Griffiths, SFReader.com

"I greatly enjoyed The Demon Within, and I look forward to continuing the books in the series. Dale feels dynamic, whole, and despite her demonic side, completely and utterly human. I long to see her grow into her powers and become at home in her own skin since, like many geeks, I know the struggles of finding my place and my people. In many ways, Dale's journey is a metaphor for anyone who has longed to find somewhere he or she can be themselves and be fully understood."
--Jodi Scaife, Fanbase Press
