"The Revenant with witches." --James Demonaco, screenwriter and director of The Purge series On a dark night in the summer of 1859, three men enter the home of Dr. Matthew Callahan and shoot him dead in front of his pregnant wife. Unbeknownst to them, Li Lian, his wife, hails from a long line of women gifted in ways that scare most folks--the witches of the MacPherson clan--and her need for vengeance is as vast and unforgiving as the Great Plains themselves. Written to the child she carries, Devil's Call traces Li Lian's quest, from the Nebraska Territory, to Louisiana, to the frozen Badlands, to bring to justice the monster responsible for shooting her husband in the back. This long-rifled witch will stop at nothing--and risk everything--in her showdown with evil.

"The Revenant with witches." --James Demonaco, screenwriter and director of The Purge series "One of the strongest female leads we've seen in ages. Fans of horror, fantasy, and westerns alike will love this jet-fueled romp through the wild west as they follow Li Lian on a quest for vengeance that will lead her and her unborn child to the very heart of evil and despair. But hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially not one with a long rifle and a deadly magic touch." --Shane Keene, HorrorTalk "The Screwtape Letters meets The Revenant--this is one of the most original tales in quite some time." --Jerry Smith, Fangoria and Blumhouse.com "Prose evocative of a young, female Elmore Leonard--but with a contemporary and hybridizing element of magical realism that tilts toward horror." --The Tracking Board "From the moment I started reading Devil's Call, I was rapt. J. Danielle Dorn masterfully draws the reader in with her incredible debut, a horror-fantasy western featuring an emotional and gritty tale of revenge. One of the best novels I've read this year...guaranteed to engage, captivate, and leave you breathless." --The Bibliosanctum "True Grit with magic." --J-F. Dubeau, author of A God in the Shed
