When you walk in the land of the Reaper, who will survive?

Serenity Walker has cast runes for as long as she can remember. Her teachers call her a prodigy, and her secret studies hold the key to unlimited potential. Once an orphan left on an old woman’s doorstep, Serenity finally belongs.

But when her mentor is murdered right in front of her, her hopes of a home die with him. Her quest for vengeance leads her into a dangerous deal with a demon. Armed with its dark power and her own talent with the runes, she blazes a trail across the lands where ranchers and railroad men are kings, where the prevailing law is the law of the gun.

To find the man who reshaped her past, Serenity offers up her future. She’ll face a world where weavers are hunted down to be hanged, whipped, or burned alive…but she won’t face it alone.

As Serenity’s mission takes her farther than most weavers are willing to go, she’ll have to decide who her true enemy is: the wicked men of the world, or the powerful demon inside her.

The Pact is a dark fantasy mystery that will leave readers with enthrall readers with demon-wrangling, magic-wielding, world building and absolute passion.

What Readers Are Saying

Serrah has proved her detailed world-building skills yet again in this beautiful, haunting book. This story has an almost “Wild West” appeal, if the old westerns included magic users and demons. ★★★★★ – Reader Elizabeth Robbins
This was an absolutely amazing read full of magic and suspense. I was completely intrigued right away and every chapter after kept me even more enthralled. It kept me guessing at every turn. I just cannot express how good of a read this was! ★★★★★ – GoodReads Reviewer Nikki (anhite)
Loved this book from the first page. The writers style is descriptive and very well done. The reader can almost feel like they are a part of the world along with the characters. I got lost inside a world of bounty hunters, demons and magic. A world that I didn’t want to leave. ★★★★★ – GoodReads Reviewer Scarlet Le Clair
