Books by Pete Nelson

FATAL TIDE by Lis Wiehl
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: Sept. 17, 2013

"Though usually known for memorable characters, Wiehl and Nelson lose the trail and the reader when what should be the climax of their East Salem trilogy gets bogged down describing the rules of the supernatural world and reciting the story developments since the second installment (Darkness Rising, 2012)."
A plague of demons threatens humanity, and there's only a small team of the devout, backed up by some angels, to stop them. Read full book review >
DARKNESS RISING by Lis Wiehl
Released: Oct. 2, 2012

"Since Wiehl (Eyes of Justice, 2012, etc.) and Nelson's pulp Armageddon runs into all the usual middle-of-trilogy problems—an ill-defined beginning, a cliffhanger ending and endless, relatively shapeless conflict in between—readers are advised to start with Waking Hours before entering this door to East Salem."
The demonic evil that first became apparent in St. Adrian's Academy for Boys spreads further in this sequel to Waking Hours (2011). Read full book review >
