Monster and demon hunting fiction has always held a special place in my heart, from blockbuster series like Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia and The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher to a ton of lesser-known novels and series in between.

One series much deserving of more attention is Beasts of Burdin by Alexander Nader. The series follows Ty Burdin, a generational demon hunter suffering burnout. The hard drinking and chain smoking hero of the books just wants to be left alone, but the Agency, a worldwide network of demon hunters, isn’t about to let him retire.

Nader’s writing is hard boiled and pulls no punches. His voice is reminiscent of a blend of Stephen Kind and Raymond Chandler, with a gift for metaphor that is second to none.

Beasts of Burdin could be best categorized as Tennessee Noir, a unique mix of mid-20th century hardboiled detective novels and Joe Lansdale—if one were to pluck the author out of East Texas and drop him in hill country. The books are octane-fuled, pull no punches, and are very, very hard to put down.

The latest book in the series is Demon Days, currently available for preorder. The first book, Beasts of Burdin, is available for the promotional price of just 99¢ on Amazon.

I highly recommend you check it out.
