The first inspiration I had for Nico and Abby was while we were driving home from Denver a few years ago and I was listening to a song called Blood Like Lemonade by Morcheeba, but the real meat and potatoes of Sacrifice came on another trip to Denver when Hozier’s Take Me To Church came on. Boom! Inspiration struck and I had a story. On that same trip I heard Ghost by Ella Henderson and the entire story arc for another character who appears in Book Two started to form (More on that later as I’m still writing book two and I don’t want to give away any spoilers). Here’s my playlist for Sacrifice, which started out being called Dusk and in the end was changed to a much more fitting title.

- Gin Wigmore – Kill of the Night
- Awolnation – SAIL

In the New Mexico desert, evil is stirring. A lost man must protect everything he holds dear from the oncoming storm and a mysterious woman is the key.
A decade after being forced out of the priesthood, Nico Lynch spends his days drinking himself into an early grave and his nights hunting demons. His world is turned upside down when he is asked to help a local Striga Coven.
Abby shouldn’t have survived, but she did and that’s turning out to be one hell of a problem for Nico. The world he lives in is black and white. There has always been a clear definition between good and evil, right and wrong. Every moment he spends with Abby challenges him to see the world differently.
Mysterious forces have brought them together, pitting them against a demon army. Nico will either be the savior of mankind or the catalyst of the apocalypse and Abby’s fate rests in his hands.
