The lonely and grieving Evan Umbra is the newest Venator to enter Veneseron, the school for demon hunters.
A Venator is a wizard, a spy and a demon hunter rolled into one. They’re taught how to wield their sorcery and enchanted weaponry by orcs, elfpires and aliens alike.
Their missions range from battling monsters and saving countless lives in the multiple worlds, to the more peculiar, like wrangling killer unicorns and calming down drunken yetis.
In their free time Venators enjoy goblin soap-opera’s and underwater bubble travel, but they also understand that every new mission they’re given could be their last.
Whilst learning how to manipulate the elements, summon creatures to fight for him and shoot Spellzookas, Evan encounters a dangerous rival and meets a girl who makes him feel nauseous; but in a good way. He makes the first friends he’s ever had in the carefree Jed and the reckless Brooke. Whilst Jed gets on the wrong side of a rival Venator, Brooke finds herself falling for the enigmatic demon hunter who brought her to Veneseron, not knowing he isn't quite human. But it soon becomes apparent that Evan is more than just a Venator. Everyone wants to kill or capture him, from demons to Dark-Venators and even people he’s supposed to be able to trust.
Evan reckons he probably won’t survive his first year at Veneseron.
After many missions in a plethora of peculiar realms, he’d managed to keep the fear of monsters locked away, but his own evil terrified him more than any demon.
Snow fell hard. Bodies fell harder.
The snow was blue here, a shade lighter than the crystalline trees surrounding them. They were in the ice jungle of Eltika, where the undergrowth was littered with a thousand ice shards and the tree vines emitted vapour cold enough to cause frostbite.
Arantay took time to survey the battle before his next opponent. His fellow demon hunters Lok and Tyrell fought on either side of him.
Lok looked like an angel, with his bright blonde hair and kind face, whilst Tyrell resembled the devil, darkly handsome and hair black as night. Ironically Lok was the most devilish of the three.
“So,” said Lok as he hewed another demon in half, “we're missing out on the mission with those sexy alien girls, for this?”
Arantay dodged a Yeti-demon's claws and hacked off its head with his enchanted blade. The monster's head was promptly lost in a whirlwind of snow. “We've also got a recruitment mission next,” Arantay replied.
“Damn it.” Lok took his anger out on a centipede-like monster, causing its innards to spill out like spaghetti. “That mission sounded awesome. Why do we get stuck with a boring one? We can go to Earth anytime.”
