If you like action, adventure, and want a wild thrill ride, author Charles Carfagno has a brand new release that might be right up your street.

A Demon’s Quest is Charles’s first book and is a fantasy novel

Here’s a little about the book:

51PhVG3AkRLTorhan hunkered down behind a large boulder to think through his options. The monks were his priority, but how was he going to find them? The chamber was too large and there were so many ants. His first thought was to use the remaining flasks of White Light and blind the ants, but there were too many variables. Could he blind them all? If so, how long would they be incapacitated? If he was discovered close to the queen, and they came through, he would be killed.

Torhan watched as they were brought down the walkway and dropped in front of the queen like some sort of gift. Some of the ones that were alive struggled to their feet, but were quickly maimed or brought down by the warrior ants. The queen grabbed the first of her tasty morsels with her giant mandibles and began squeezing the human. The man’s dying screams were so loud it frightened Torhan. After he was dead, she swallowed him whole.
