Darkness has a seductive power, a delicious energy that sinks its claws in deep. Once the devil has a hold of you, true malevolence is born.
Sheriff Brady James has sworn to protect the small town of Durham Heights, his current priority to ruthlessly hunt a sadistic killer on the loose. With lives at stake, his focus is split between two beautiful women – one dark, one light. The clock is ticking, the threat palpable; crawling closer at every turn. Once death has you in its sights, there is no escape.
Pain. Suffering. Lives shattered and broken. In the fight of good against evil, who will survive?

Due to mature content and violent situations, this book is recommended for readers 18 years and up.
4 Impressive stars!!
Ms. Brightmore, I am very impressed with your debut book, Malevolent!! Great job in creating exciting and likable characters. Along with a diabolical story that effortlessly flows. Right from the beginning, you had my full attention and held it all the way through. It’s a definite page turner! I’m usually not a fan of third person, but it added a special something to this book and was done beautifully.
Malevolent is a twisted tale of a brutal serial killer in a small town. It starts off with quite the bang! Extremely dark. You are immediately engulfed in terror. I was literally asking myself, do I really want to read this book??? It had me squirming in my seat. But since my motto is the darker the better, I was loving every minute of it!! As the story unfolded, the depravity from the beginning started to diminish. It was still lurking but not in the fore front. I was please to see the book also had a sexy, playful and airy side. Which I enjoyed just as much as the dark. I was delighted with the way the author transitioned between the dark and light… I just wish she would have kept the same level of darkness throughout. She did hit me with some great twists that knocked me for a loop… You will question everything in this book, searching for clues. Each of her characters are strong and memorable. I loved sheriff Brady James! He will have you saying, yes officer!! Lol. Their is also the sweet innocent girl, Gwyn and the royal bitch, Mila. All of them bring lots of flavor and make this book stand out….
I’m so excited to see what Cassia Brightmore has in store for us next! She already has an exceptional level of talent and she has only just begun….
