What do you do when your most dangerous foe is the one living inside you? When Molly Brooks fought her way back to Detroit after her trials in the Nether, she came back changed. The life she thought she had, the one thing that helped keep her sane, was gone. She feels wrong in her own skin, scared. And her powers...well. They're just not working the way they're supposed to. She doesn't have a whole lot of time to wallow, though.
With two angry spirit daemons hell-bent on punishing her and the city she loves for her deeds, as well as war brewing between Detroit's supernaturals and certain members of the pantheon looking for revenge, Molly has her hands full. But what she's forced to face is nothing compared to the evil that lurks inside of her.
As her world starts to spiral out of control, as war rages, Molly finds comfort in the last place she ever thought she would. And she comes to learn, after a life spent alone, what family really means. And how much she's willing to risk to protect it.
Strife is the fourth book in the Hidden series, an urban fantasy/paranormal romance series from author Colleen Vanderlinden.
