Some sacrifices cost more than death…Demon Rising by DeAnna Browne

“An enthralling new voice gives us a magical world where love leads to dark decisions.” ~ Jami Gray, award winning author
“…extremely well written, filled with wonderful characters, strange happenings, and face paced action. I, for one, found it very hard to put down. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.” ~Taylor Jones, reviewer 

Published: August 2017

Some sacrifices cost more than death…

Thirty years ago, dark magicians unleashed new power on the earth fueled by demons. Governments toppled, millions died and magicians ended up on top of the food chain.

Twenty-four-year-old Becca survives these dangerous times by relying on her wits, her fists, and the limited goodwill of her boss, a local crime lord. When news comes of a fire back home and the family she left behind dead, she realizes her dark past has finally caught up to her.

On the hunt for her missing sister, she must rely on Darion, a treacherous ex-boyfriend with ties to the local coven for back-up. Problem is he’s a pyromancer that can’t be trusted, especially with her heart. Will she escape the sticky web of treachery and deceit with her sister and her heart, or will she sacrifice it all to save another?

Becca’s forced to navigate a dangerous web of deceit and must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save her sister.

Reveling in the Night

Recently a friend approached me after reading my novel, Demon Rising, and was surprised by the dark magic and tense adventure inside of it. She was surprised “someone like me could write something like that.” My first reaction was, I wondered what she must think of Stephen King? 

But it has got me thinking, why do we enjoy being scared. The remake of IT has been a box office hit for weeks. I grew up watching the Twilight Zone and the X-files and I love a good thriller. I think people love going through the emotions of a good story whether it be fear, love, anger, or hurt. It is the closest most of us get to living these different exciting lives.

As authors, it is just as fun to write that same suspense and horror in our stories. Just don’t assume we’re all creepy. That same friend that was surprised by its dark nature ended up buying two more books for friends which I signed. So something must have worked.

Hi Deanna, how do you control the 'horror' level in your novels? Are you led by the characters? Do you end up having sleeping with the light on?

Is demon power at least a renewable fuel source?

When did you really know you were meant to be a writer, and how did you characters develop?

Do you write different genres of literature or just focus on one?
