Publisher's Summary

As a hardworking monster slayer, Dave Hooper tries not to bring his work home with him. But nowadays it's hard to keep them separate. Email, cellphones, empath daemons, they never let a guy rest.
The Horde has been raising hell and leveling cities from New York to Los Angeles, keeping Dave and his fellow monster killer, Russian spy Karin Varatschevsky, very busy. But when the legions of hell invade the small seaside town his boys call home, Dave has to make a call. Save the world? Or save his family?
Not as easy a choice as you'd think, since Dave's ex-wife expects to be saved, too. And there's no convincing her that the super sexy Russian spy isn't his girlfriend. She's just his sidekick - and an assassin.

Loved it, and I hope the story continues

Would you listen to Ascendance again? Why?

Maybe. It's definitely a favorite, but I know what happens now. I would probably reread it, just a couple years after finishing it

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dave. He's a dick, but an honest and entertaining dick

What does Mark Zeisler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

More action that reading alone wouldn't provide

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

no, but enjoyed it all

Pt3 of a great tale

The series is addictive. Flawed hero. Current references. Great humor. Where's part 4? open-open-open... Hurry up!
