Demons from the Dark Dimension pour through a portal in the wall of Pittingham Manor, the mid-point for an attack on high. They’re planning an assault.
Into this chaos stumble 12-year-old ghost-busting psychic Alannah Malarra and burglar Wortley Flint. Up until now they’ve only ever faced tame treasure-hoarding ghosts, but this is something else. Their only hope is a plucky angel police patrol on a routine earth-monitoring mission. Enter Inspectre Flhi Swift and officers Yell and Gloom.
Demon Strike is filled with fabulous comic characters, including psychic ghost-busting 12-year-old adventurers Alannah Mallara and Wortley Flint, together with rookie A.N.G.E.L. police-officers, Flhi Swift and troopers, Yell and Gloom – and some unspeakably villainous demons from the dark-side.
Alannah Malarra’s mobile phone buzzed in her hand like an angry wasp. The twelve-year-old had disabled the ring tone hours earlier, but its electronic spasms still pierced the night’s silence. She quickly flicked her wrist to open the handset, killing the noise instantly.
