The Blackwings Stories
All around the city, people are getting sick, and accidents are happening. Most of us can't see what's causing the problems. The Blackwings can. They see the Shadow Demons. Gabe is a college student, the oldest demon-hunter still fighting. Alexis is a high school student who wanted to be left alone, but hunts demons as part of a team. DeAndre is the latest to realize what's going on, and it cancels the big plans he had for his life.
The Shadow Demons are attacking. They eat the life out of people. They must be stopped.
Outbreak - When the class president starts acting strangely, Alexis knows Shadow Demons are behind it. If there's one in the school, she knows more are coming. She tries to fight them alone, and it's not going well.
