What if banishing the demon was the wrong thing to do?

Six months ago, the disgraced wizard, Alloran, sacrificed his hand and risked his life and soul to rescue the woman he loves from his traitorous friend. Despite saving the city from a demon, the council of wizards punished him severely for practising banned magic.

Now he learns his desperate attempt to banish the demon threatens to send the whole world to hell. To unravel the damage, Alloran is forced to dabble in taboo hell magic, and must choose between saving himself and everything he holds dear.

Endorsements
"Alloran is a thinking man's wizard; he broods and considers possibilities and alternatives. I loved being privy to his thoughts and plans as he works out how to resolve the problem... There's a lot of action and adventure in this book... Ballintyne's questors are valiant and bold, and the action is vivid and fast. Stalking the Demon is a fitting successor to Ballintyne's brilliant debut novel, Confronting the Demon: The Seven Circles of Hell, Book 1. It's most highly recommended."
I really liked the first book, and this sequel is a great follow-up. The descent into the hell realm is exciting, better even than the climax of the first book, when hell makes an appearance in Alloran's world. I love the tentacled first-realm demons, very kraken meets Lovecraftian Old Ones."

"Stalking the Demon was quick and intricate, but slow and methodical at the same time. I found myself constantly trying to figure out what would happen next, and was usually wrong. There was a great amount of action and suspense that really grabbed me and kept me reading until the end."
– Joe Slonaker
"Awesome conflict on every page. Tons of surprises too. Great ending! This is a fast read, but the setting and characterization is rich and deep and I fell into the story in a way I didn't expect."
