DÄMOREN (Valducan, #1)

By Seth Skorkowsky | Cover by J.M. Martin


Dämoren is book one of Seth Skorkowsky's popular urban fantasy series, Valducan. Book two, Hounacier, will be released mid-March, 2015.


In the same vein as SUPERNATURAL, HELLBOY, and BLADE comes... DÄMOREN.



A secret society of monster hunters.
A holy revolver forged to eradicate demons.
A possessed man with a tragic past.
A rising evil bent on destroying them all. 


MATT HOLLIS is the current wielder of the holy weapon, Dämoren. With it, he stalks and destroys demons. 


A secret society called the VALDUCANS has taken an interest in Matt’s activities. They see him as a reckless rogue—little more than a ‘cowboy’ corrupted by a monster—and a potential threat to their ancient order. 


As knights and their sentient weapons begin dying, Matt teams up with other hunters of his kind such as LUIZA, a woman with a conquistador blade; ALLAN, an Englishman with an Egyptian khopesh; MALCOLM, a voodoo priest with a sanctified machete; and TAKAIRA, a naginata-swinging Samurai.


As the hunters become the hunted, they must learn to trust one another before a powerful demonic entity thrusts the world into a terrible and ageless darkness.



"Skorkowsky's Dämoren has the makings of a rollicking urban fantasy adventure in the noir tradition."

—Elizabeth Bear, Author of Hammered (Jenny Casey) and Blood and Iron (Promethean Age)
