Jordan Amador. 21. New Yorker. Waitress. Mild alcoholic. Murderer.
Two years ago, Jordan accidentally shot and killed a Seer: a person who
can see, hear, and talk to ghosts with unfinished business. Her crime
came with a hefty price, too. She has two years to help a hundred
souls cross over to the afterlife or her soul is bound for hell.
Tough break.
As if that weren’t bad enough, two days before her deadline a handsome
pain-in-the-ass poltergeist named Michael strolls into her life. His
soul is the key to her salvation, but the cost just might be more
than she can handle. Solving his death puts her right in the
crosshairs of Belial: a vain, bloodthirsty archdemon who won’t rest
until she’s his slave. Can she rescue Michael and save her own
soul, or will they both be dragged down into the clutches of the
eternal black parade?

from her husband the archangel Michael, hated by the angels who think
she betrayed them, hunted by demons who want her dead or enslaved,
and rejected by her friends and family for lying to them. Disgraced
and miserable, she’s all but ready to lay down and die until
another Seer named Myra Bennett saves her life. Myra gives Jordan a
new mission: to wipe out a nest of demons that are terrorizing her
family as well as the innocent people of Houston, Texas. Jordan goes
undercover to infiltrate the demons’ nest and figure out how to
eliminate them. Meanwhile, she’s locked in a deadly game with the
archdemon Belial, who constantly visits her night after night in her
dreams to convince her to give him her soul. Between the insanely
gorgeous, but dangerous archdemon poking around in her head and the
vicious creatures surrounding her, she’s not sure how much longer
she can survive.
Back to Black takes place between She Who Fights Monsters and
The Holy Dark in the Black Parade series.

CHAPTER ONE

Dying’s a bitch, and I would know.

To be fair, I didn’t actually remember what happened when I died. It was over a year ago, and the soul is a radically different entity from the mind. In case you’re wondering, yes, there is an afterlife, and no, I can’t tell you what it looks like. Sorry. Life is full of disappointments.

How then, Ms. Jordan Amador, you ask, can you say dying is a bitch if you don’t remember your own death? Well, I remember everything up until my death, and that was certainly a bitch. The archdemon Belial had kidnapped me with the intent of sacrificing me so that he could open a portal into the body of the archangel Michael, therefore allowing him unlimited power and access to influencing the innocent people of the world to do his bidding. Long story short, we stopped him, but I died in the process, and in excruciating pain, I might add.

Much like right now.

Ever had one of those out-of-body experiences? Not the kind that you’d see in the movie Ghost, but a true case of an otherworldly viewing of your own self. Detachment. Like someone plucked away the strings that connected you to yourself, and the byproduct was that you almost felt like the consequences of the world didn’t directly affect you.

That was me.

I was hanging from two thick, nasty braided ropes: each one at my wrist, cutting off circulation. A spotlight illuminated my body and its myriad of problems: broken ribs, fractured eye-socket, busted lip, cracked teeth, and what felt like severe internal bleeding. It hurt to breathe. It hurt to exist, really.

My current predicament came at the hands of a short brunette with matted curly hair, a pug nose, and pale skin courtesy of her father, Lamont Brooks. Mr. Brooks was a loan shark from Detroit who had swindled my estranged father and then tried to kill him. I took issue with that. My pseudo-brother, the archangel Gabriel—long story—and I busted Lamont and his whole operation several months ago, and sent her old man up the river.

And she took issue with that.

In my defense, these clowns got lucky. It was late at night, I was exhausted, alone, and under-prepared for six hulking guys in masks jumping me in the parking lot, beating me senseless, and dragging me into a van. I had no idea where we were, but I knew that no one was going to save me if I didn’t save myself.

I’d tried. The ropes were too tight and I had no use of my hands. Brooks’ daughter, Bridgett as I overheard one of the Mooks call her, worked me over for hours, and I had no energy left. Figures. I’d saved the world twice now and yet I was going to be delivered to fate by some snot-nosed bitch with Daddy issues. Life had a cruel sense of humor. 

 

The Holy Dark
The Black Parade Book 4
463 pages
Sarcastic demon-slayer extraordinaire Jordan Amador has been locked in a
year-long struggle to hunt down the thirty silver coins paid to Judas
Iscariot. The mere touch of these coins is enough to kill any angel.
Jordan’s demonic opposition grows more desperate with each coin found, so they
call on the ultimate reinforcement: Moloch, the Archdemon of War.
Moloch puts out a contract on Jordan as well as her estranged
husband, the Archangel Michael. Now Jordan and Michael will have to
find a way to work together to survive against impossible odds and
stop Moloch’s plan, or else he’ll wage a war that will wipe out the
human race.
The Holy Dark is the third novel and fourth book in the Black Parade

The Black Parade series, and She Who Fights Monsters.
