Being book three of the second Raven trilogy, the rather idiosyncratic SFRevu database naturally wants to list this title as the second Barclay release this month - do not be fooled! - this, Demonstorm is most definitely book six in the series.
"Again the war-ravaged continent Balaia is in big trouble. Bigger than ever. Attacked for excellent reasons by the barbarian Wesmen, the magical college of Xetesk desperately misuses its doomsday weapon of "dimensional magic", and tears a hole between realms. Endless hordes of demons come swarming through, eager to make Balaia their new home. No ordinary weapon will kill them, but they can drain human souls with just a touch. The odds are, as always, impossible.
