For Fox, Caleb, Gage and the other residents of Hawkins Hollow, the number seven portends doom—ever since, as boys, they freed a demon trapped for centuries when their blood spilled upon The Pagan Stone...
Their innocent bonding ritual led to seven days of madness, every seven years. And now, as the dreaded seventh month looms before them, the men can feel the storm brewing. Already they are plagued by visions of death and destruction. But this year, they are better prepared, joined in their battle by three women who have come to The Hollow. Layla, Quinn, and Cybil are somehow connected to the demon, just as the men are connected to the force that trapped it.
Since that fateful day at the Pagan Stone, town lawyer Fox has been able to see into other's minds, a talent he shares with Layla. He must earn her trust, because their link will help fight the darkness that threatens to engulf the town. But Layla is having trouble coming to terms with her newfound ability - and with this intimate connection to Fox. She knows that once she opens her mind, she'll have no defense against the desire that threatens to consume them both ....

I picked this book up as soon as I finished reading the 1st book BLOOD BROTHERS. I already felt like there was a bond, a familiarity with the 3 guys and loved how Quinn, Layla and Cybil were brought into the story.
It's getting closer to that fateful time when the Demon will unleash his power and cause havoc on the town once again, but this time the guys can feel that he is stronger and angrier - and feel that if they don't find a way to end his reign of terror over the town, the people and ultimately their own lives, that it could be the end for all of them.
Their friendships and relationships grow stronger, if that is at all possible - and find that through the visions they are shown, they have to delve back into the past to search for answers and a solution to rid them of the Demon.
Once again - they fight visions that to them feel real - but looking around, they see other townsfolk don't see what they are seeing. As time goes on, they find that some of the townspeople are starting to get physically hurt instead ... and their search for answers at one time reaches fever pitch.
We still have the love stories growing throughout this book - and you can feel the personal turmoil that each one of them goes through, with pain and feelings of protection over each other, as well as finding out more about the childhoods of each of the guys.
