Host Chronicles: The Devil’s Offspring (Vol. 1) by D L Cox #Fantasy #Fiction #GoodReads

Makeda said, “The devil actually has three seeds here on earth. They’re not working together, which will make our job a little more difficult.”
Tobias scratched his chin. “That’s an interesting development. We need to inform the high council.”
“The high council?” Nat questioned.
“Yes,” Tobias said. “The Host is a heavenly warrior, but her efforts against the forces of evil are coordinated by a group of enlightened humans known as the high council. They head the Order of Light.” Tobias patted Nat on his back. “There is much you need to learn young Nathaniel.”
There was the sound of a helicopter approaching.
“Our ride is here,” Tobias announced.
Makeda led Nat and Tobias out the monastery. In the distance, a convoy of four black SUV’s and two low flying helicopters approached. Each helicopter carried a sniper. The convoy of SUV’s pulled up in front of Nat, Makeda, and Tobias while the helicopters hovered in the air about twenty yards away. Three men carrying automatic machine guns got out of each of the first two SUV’s and spread out in front of the monastery. One of the men motioned Makeda to get in the back of the third SUV. Makeda headed to the SUV, opened the door, and then ran back over to Nat.
“What’s wrong?” Nat asked her.
Makeda beheld Nat’s face and kissed him passionately on the lips. “I couldn’t be the Host until I experienced love, and it happened at first sight.” She took Nat by the hand and led him to the back of the third SUV.
Tobias smiled as Makeda and Nat climbed into the back of the SUV and then he climbed into the back of the last SUV. The armed men got back into their vehicles and the convoy pulled off followed by the helicopters.

In this Urban Fantasy, the devil’s daughter, SALEENA, and her reaper boyfriend, IZZY, elope to earth and seek to overthrow her estranged brother, SIMON CLASH, as the devil’s heir apparent on earth, but Simon is head of a powerful conglomerate, and he’s not going out without a fight. As the rivalry turns bloody, the warring siblings discover the devil has been manipulating their feud to advance his secret agenda and is using them as decoys to draw out a sword-wielding champion of humanity called the HOST, whom must be slain before the devil can unleash a reign of terror on earth.
Legend says the Host will emerge when humanity plunges into hopelessness and despair, and NATHANIEL BRENNER, the young man responsible for delivering a magic sword to the Host, hopes that is soon. Nathaniel has spent the last six years searching for the Host to no avail and has recently seen a drastic rise in demon activity on earth, which he knows could only mean one thing: humanity is running out of time. Saleena and Simon unite to save their own hides, but it may be too late—not only for the devil’s offspring, but for humanity too! The future of humanity hangs in the balance, and Nathaniel is determined to thwart the devil’s plans and find the Host.
