Conshohocken, PA, May 25, 2012 --(PR.com)-- When an ancient relic of enormous power inadvertently
falls into the hands of a weak and desperate antiques dealer, hell on earth becomes more than just a cliché
to the small town of Banderman Falls, Pennsylvania. Seduced into believing that the relic is his to
command, Carlton Wedgemore is manipulated into serving the demonic incarnation of all evil, Zachariah
Witherstone. And Banderman Falls is plunged into a nightmare of darkness from which it may never
awaken. In his quest to acquire the icon, Witherstone usurps the minds of the townspeople through
dreams of lust and torment. He divides the town, pitting men against women, husbands against wives and
brothers against sisters. And the people soon find themselves no more than puppets dancing on the strings
It begins with the murder of a young convenience store clerk. At first, Sheriff Jack Dougherty is
convinced it's a robbery gone awry. But when two men go missing and his deputy turns up dead, Jack
begins to sense that there may be more powerful forces at work in his town - a sense that is confirmed
when he is brutally attacked by insects in defense of their master.
At the same time that Jack is discovering that the peace and harmony of Banderman Falls is unwinding,
Father Gabriel Jacobs receives a visit from an old friend. Geoffrey Dunsmore, a man with unusual
abilities, enlists his friend's aid in a struggle that will claim more than lives.
As the terror unwinds, ordinary people must rise to a challenge that will test their faith, test their courage
and demand the ultimate sacrifice for a chance at victory. Hell has come to devour all, and has chosen
Banderman Falls as its first entrée.
In Book 2: Carpe Noctem, the nightmare continues. The town is torn apart and destruction reigns
supreme. Foul creatures, dug from the earth, will join with Witherstone, now in his demon form. Forces
are drawn together on both sides ... good and evil ... and a final, midnight showdown in the cemetery will
decide the fate of all of Banderman Falls ... and beyond. Hope is all that the mortals seem to have left. In
control of the icon, Witherstone stands on the edge of a victorious annihilation of all mankind. Everything
will hinge on the honor of an old man, the powers of a woman who is just coming into her own, and the
courage of a young boy.
The only question that remains is: which side will Seize the Night?
