A freak accident leaves the Berkeley Blackfriars helpless in the face of their demonic foes. Bereft of their powers of exorcism, they must rely on their quick wits and good humor to survive as all around them a horde of the damned is growing. They are waiting. They will strike. Meanwhile, an even more deadly power is looming on the world stage which, if left unchecked, will lead to the wholesale slaughter of an entire people. The Berkeley Blackfriars are t your standard-brand priests. They are, in fact, deeply flawed human beings-they swear like longshoremen and aren't above the occasional spliff or one-night stand. But if you've got a nasty demon on your ass, they're exactly the folks you want in your corner. The first book in the Berkeley Blackfriars saga, THE KINGDOM, introduced us to the Order of St. Raphael and their unusual methods. THE POWER continues the story, with the same unique mixture of suspense, tragedy, whimsy, and horror. If you loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Garth Ennis' Preacher comic book series, give THE KINGDOM and THE POWER a try-you won't be sorry. They are utterly unique adventures that are too profane for the religious and too religious for the profane-mmmm...just right.
