Discover the series urban fantasy fans are raving about! Read this action-packed, monster-hunting thrill ride and answer the age-old question, what happened to the Templars?
Time is running out...
Thanks to his father's mysterious pocket watch, Gideon "Gad" Goodwin knows the exact time and date when someone is about to die. He uses that information in his role as an EMT to save as many lives as possible.
Unfortunately, he's unwittingly disrupting the Balance between Heaven and Hell while doing so and that has cosmic consequences.
Not only do his actions give Hell and its demons the upper hand in Las Vegas, the City of Sin, but it also paints a target on Gad's back for both sides of the conflict. Even worse, his pocket watch is now suddenly counting down the hours to his own appointed time with the grim reaper.
Can Gad put things to right and restore the Balance before the watch ticks down his final moments?
From out of the darkness comes a light...
For five long years the Adversary and his infernal allies have ruled the earth, herding mankind into demon-controlled enclaves and hunting those that remain near to extinction.
The Templars, a mere shadow of their once-powerful organization have continued to fight against overwhelming odds, but for many hope and a belief in a human victory are things of the past.
Then, from the depths of the Beyond, a pair of legends emerge.
The return of Cade Williams and his beloved wife, Gabrielle, a mighty warrior in her own right, galvanize the Templars. The Heretic’s presence lights a fire in their souls and a flame in their hearts.
Now, they prepare for their greatest challenge yet. It is time to reclaim what was thought lost.
It is time, at long last, to take the battle to the enemy.
The spellbinding Templar Chronicles urban fantasy series continues!
Necromancers, revenants, even a summoned demon or two - they're all in a day's work for the monster-hunting men of the Echo Team and their enigmatic leader, Cade Williams. But nothing could prepare them for the fury they are about to face...
When a Jesuit priest wanders out of the New Mexico desert, telling wild stories about a secret research installation and bloodthirsty demons hunting through its halls, the Echo Team is called in to deal with the situation. Their orders - investigate the facility, determine exactly what happened there, and eliminate any infernal presence that might remain.
But the being they encounter beneath the desert sands has found a way to break the bonds of Hell itself and doesn't plan on going back easily. This time, their foe might prove to be too much for even the best the Templars have to offer.
Knight Commander Cade Williams is having a bad day. A message from a once-powerful enemy reveals the unthinkable. Cade's wife, Gabrielle, is not dead as he has long believed, but held captive deep in the Beyond, a prisoner of the Adversary, and Cade vows that nothing will stop him from freeing her soul from the prison that binds her.
Standing in his way, however, is an army of Chiang Shih – Chinese vampires with a taste for human flesh and a desire to invade our world – backed by what looks like half the spectres this side of Hell.
Never mind the Adversary himself.
Cade's not worried, though. He's got a few tricks up his sleeve and the Echo Team at his back.
Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Knight Commander, and together he and the Echo Team intend to kick some angel ass!
Joseph Nassise, the New York Times bestselling author of the Templar Chronicles, delivers another pulse-pounding adventure you won't want to miss!
The war with the Chiang Shih is over but the Templars have paid a high price for victory. Even the Echo Team has not escaped unscathed, its commander returned a changed man with his thirst for vengeance quenched, but his spirit broken.
It is the moment Simon Logan, the Necromancer has been waiting for. A daring prison break allows him to escape Templar control and vanish into the night. Newly promoted Captain Riley and the reformed Echo Team are given the job of tracking him down. But rather than waiting for Echo to come looking for him, the Necromancer takes the battle to them instead; luring former Commander Williams away from his home and stealing the physical form of his wife, Gabrielle, a woman caught somewhere between life and death.
It is perhaps the one act that could rouse Cade from the grey haze his life has become. As he ruthlessly tracks the Necromancer through this world and the next, Cade can't help but ask himself what Logan might want with a half-dead woman and the man who had literally traveled to hell and back to rescue her.

Gabrielle Williams has done the impossible. She pierced the Veil, entered the Beyond, and located the long-lost leader of the Echo Team, her husband, Cade.
But the world they return to is not the one they left behind. All they fought for, everything they sought to preserve through their sacrifices, seems lost. As they struggle to find familiar faces in an unfamiliar world, one question burns in the forefront of their thoughts.
What happened to the Templars?
Cade Williams' worst nightmare has come true. The Necromancer's black magick has not only released the Adversary from the infernal realms where Cade imprisoned it, but allowed the fallen angel to possess the body of Cade's beloved wife, Gabrielle, in the process. When the Templars interrupt the ritual and kill the Necromancer, the Adversary sprouts wings and escapes into the darkness.
Branded a traitor by the Templars for his cooperation with the sorcerer, willing or not, Cade finds himself hunted by his former allies as an enemy of the Order while working feverishly to track down the Adversary and rescue his wife from the vile creature's control. It is almost too much for the weary Echo Team commander to handle.
Just when he thinks things can't get any worse, he makes contact with a creature known as the Forsaken One and discovers answers to the questions that have haunted him since the Adversary first appeared in his life. Answers that may ultimately cost him more than he ever imagined.

Unable to bear the reality of what he has done, all Cade wants to do is find a deep hole and pull it in after him. Let the world go on without him, for all he loves is lost and he sees no reason to continue.
Cade thinks it is over.
