After surviving her parents’ attempt to make her a sacrificial scapegoat, Cady is back to running the Tambuku Tiki Lounge and building a relationship with sexy Earthbound demon Lon and his teenage son. Cady and Lon’s brief moment of normalcy is shattered when several children are kidnapped. Frighteningly, these kidnappings echo ones from decades earlier, in which seven children vanished. Cady and Lon are asked by the head of the Hellfire Club to help track and stop this horrifying bogeyman. With few clues and more kids disappearing, the pressure is on! (POCKET, May, 352 pp., $7.99)
