Host Chronicles: The Devil's Offspring (Volume 1) by D L Cox #Excerpt #Fantasy #BookClub

Nat had listened attentively to Sheba’s life story, and then he told her about his mission and Simon’s true identity. Sheba tried her best to take Nat seriously, but couldn’t keep from doubling over in laughter.

“I’m serious,” Nat told her.

Sheba held her stomach. “So Simon Clash is the devil’s son, and he’s at war with his sister who crossed over from hell. And a demon told you all of this?”

“Not all of it,” Nat explained. “Just the part about Simon’s sister.”

Sheba laughed again. “And you carry a sword that you’re going to give to the human/angel who’s going to save the world from Simon.”

Nat nodded. “Yeah, I’m serious.”

Sheba looked into his eyes and stopped laughing. “I don’t believe it,” she muttered.

“What?” Nat asked, frustrated.

She touched his cheek. “You really believe what you’re saying.”

“That’s because it’s true,” Nat insisted.

“Okay,” Sheba said. “Let’s just agree that Simon Clash is a very bad man. What do we do now?”

Nat stood and paced. “If they saw you with me, they probably think we’re working together.”

Sheba pressed, “Yeah, but what should we do?”

“We wait,” Nat said.

“Wait?” Sheba asked with a frown.

Nat nodded. “They have the tactical advantage out there. We have the advantage in here. They’ll get restless and storm the place, and we’ll take them out when they do.”

Sheba grabbed a gun off the bed and chambered a round. “It makes sense to me.”


In this Urban Fantasy, the devil’s daughter, SALEENA, and her reaper boyfriend, IZZY, elope to earth and seek to overthrow her estranged brother, SIMON CLASH, as the devil’s heir apparent on earth, but Simon is head of a powerful conglomerate, and he’s not going out without a fight. As the rivalry turns bloody, the warring siblings discover the devil has been manipulating their feud to advance his secret agenda and is using them as decoys to draw out a sword-wielding champion of humanity called the HOST, whom must be slain before the devil can unleash a reign of terror on earth.

Legend says the Host will emerge when humanity plunges into hopelessness and despair, and NATHANIEL BRENNER, the young man responsible for delivering a magic sword to the Host, hopes that is soon. Nathaniel has spent the last six years searching for the Host to no avail and has recently seen a drastic rise in demon activity on earth, which he knows could only mean one thing: humanity is running out of time. Saleena and Simon unite to save their own hides, but it may be too late—not only for the devil’s offspring, but for humanity too! The future of humanity hangs in the balance, and Nathaniel is determined to thwart the devil’s plans and find the Host.
