This is the second book in a series. A very interesting blend of old world fantasy and modern world events. First in the series was Running with the Demon, and I recommend reading it first.

Nest and John Ross return in the second installment of the series called "The Word and Void Trilogy." John Ross has forsaken his duties as a Knight of the Word and the Lady has assigned Nest to convince him to get his act back together.

While I found the story entertaining, I did not find it as gripping as the first book "Running with the Demon." Not to say I didn't like it, but we are talking apples and oranges here. Brooks slows down the pace considerably here and the characters do much more navel gazing. I did enjoy the chase scene between a demon and one of the characters . . . pretty intense.

If you liked "Running with the Demon" you'll like "A Knight of the Word" but just expect something different. Sometimes change is good.

Not one of my favorite readings. It was slow to get started.

Haven't read this one yet, as I somehow got two copies, but if it's from Brooks, it's bound to be good.

From back cover: Eight centuries ago the first Knight of the Word was commissioned to combat the demonic evil of the Void. Now that daunting legacy has passed to John Ross--along with powerful magic and the knowledge that his actions are all that stand between a living hell and humanity's future.
Then, after decades of service to the Word, an unspeakable act of violence shatters John Ross's weary faith. Haunted by guilt, he turns his back on his dread gift, settling down to build a normal life, untroubled by demons and nightmares.
But a fallen Knight makes a tempting prize for the Void, which could bend the Knight's magic to its own evil ends. And once the demons on Ross's trail track him to Seattle, neither he nor anyone close to him will be safe. His only hope is Nest Freemark, a college student who wields an extraordinary magic all her own. Five years earlier, Ross had aided Nest when the future of humanity rested upon her choice between Word and Void. Now Nest must return the favor. She must restore Ross's faith, or his life--and hers--will be forfeit . . .
