Five Out of the Pit by Holli Anderson Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Five Out of the Pit



The Five find their way to Moab, Utah where, before they’re even settled in, evil finds them.

As Paige fights to keep from succumbing to the pull of an Incubus that has her marked as his next conquest, Johnathan seeks to find a way to rid her of a curse she willingly accepted in order to save him.

A surprising revelation initiates a long-awaited, yet unexpected, reunion for Alec who discovers a new magical talent he possesses.

The FIVE, along with their mentor, Joe, must figure out what was meant by the last words of a Demon as it was sent back to the Netherworld—a promise of Gathering darkness—and stop the evil before it’s unleashed on the small town of Moab. And, the world.

He was interrupted by the Demon’s laughter. “I shall return to this realm a short time hence. Along with a multitude of Demons and Fae.”

“What are you talking about?” Joe asked.

“He’s just stalling,” Seth hissed.

“Believe what you will, young Quinaie Praesidia.”

“How do you plan to return?” Joe persisted.

“You shall know the hour is at hand when the heavens gather blackness and all the elements combine to protect the way. The very jaws of Hell shall gape open its mouth wide after The Five. You should all be very afraid.” It laughed its Demonic laugh, rows of teeth dripping green saliva that hissed as it hit the floor.

 My Review:

Another good one from Holli. This one is just as good as the first one in the series. I started reading and couldn’t put it down. We catch up with Paige and the others in Utah. Evil has found them once again.  This time the evil is in the form of an Incubus that is after Paige.  While dealing with the Incubus something is revealed about Alec (one of the Five) that sends them on a quest to help him find the answers he needs. As they are doing this and fighting evil at the same time each of them deal with learning new abilities. I highly recommend picking up a copy and adding it to your TBR pile.

Holli Anderson has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing—which has nothing to do with writing, except maybe by adding some pretty descriptive injury and vomit scenes to her books. She discovered her joy of writing during a very trying period in her life when escaping into make-believe saved her. She enjoys reading any book she gets her hands on, but has a particular love for anything fantasy.
Along with her husband, Steve, and their four sons, she lives in Grantsville, Utah—the same small town in which she grew up.  Find out more about her here.

#AtoZChallenge: Zombie


This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes.  It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants.  🙂

To close out this wonderful challenge we will be discussing Zombies. The zombie comes from Haitian lore. They are depicted as  a walking corpse. They are usually being controlled by someone or something. They are known to eat the flesh of living humans. Zombies have been shown in movies like Night of the Living Dead.  On television shows such as The Walking Dead.
