Rogue Land…Rogue Land…Nothing lives in Rogue Land. Angela wrote this poem, her view of the violent and savage world in which she lived. A city being ravaged by gangsters and brutal police officers, who have been locked in a war that have claimed many. Her own father; Rourke Carter leads a special crimes unit, and has been on the edge for years, a man whose mental state is deteriorating as he hunts men like ‘the magician’ who is at war with the ‘Tribesmen’. But as ethical and legal boundaries are crossed, a new war begins, with an enemy so powerful and elusive that his presence threatens everything Rourke has ever had, pushing him and his family into the ultimate duel where everything is on the line………

Prologue

I watched him at work, a demon filled with rage, controlled but merciless. He stopped at nothing as he left a trail of fire and blood. At the climax of his rampage where he had single handily eliminated two of the most notorious crews in the State, he dragged men up flights of stairs as I watched from down below, strapped in the car seat. He had this Herculean type of strength and a fury that could not be matched, as he threw man after man from a shattered window many storeys up, I watched him stare down at their death. He never got tired and his will for vengeance never dimmed in all the hours that passed, there was no mercy in him and I did not know him then, I did not even know his name.

We raced through the desert towards the border and I no longer cried and had not even once pleaded for mercy as he had none to give. I could not even look at him and he kept me strapped in the passenger seat as his eyes focused on the road ahead. The dust covered everything coming from the furious tyres of his machine, he had this supernatural quality, like a freak of nature, something terrible that had been awakened from a long sleep. I kept my eyes closed and dreaded sundown, what the night would bring and what would happen to me after we crossed the border. I knew I had lost everything, I was never going home again.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Someone: This was a lovely read -- very clean stylistically, developed setting, fairly interesting plot. The characters occasionally felt inconsistent, but overall they were well-developed. I enjoyed it. CHARACTERS:In the beginning, Andrew was the cautious one. By the end, he’s a full-blown revolutionary....

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

William Po: Enjoyed the characters and story of the USAF during WWII. Author seems knowledgeable about planes and situations faced by bomber personnel. Also the suffering the air war caused on both sides to civilians.

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
