Robin is a YouTube celebrity gone-viral with her intensely-realistic witch hunter series. But even her millions of followers don't know the truth: her series isn't fiction. Her ultimate mission is to seek revenge against the coven of witches who wronged her mother long ago.

Returning home to the rural town of Blackfield, Robin draws attention from a motley crew of locals-a boy with the ability to see beyond our world, her childhood best friend harboring occult knowledge, and a veteran combat medic running from his past.

Then, a new, mysterious threat known as the Red Lord suddenly rears its head, and Robin must discover the link between the coven and this demon before evil reigns in Blackfield.

Reviews for Burn the Dark (#1 Malus Domestica)

Burn the Dark is a brilliant debut! S. A. Hunt gets everything right about the creepier aspects of digital culture and presents a compelling and memorable female lead. --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Glimpse S.A. Hunt is a kickass storyteller conquering the zone between fantasy and horror. Keep an eye on this one, because they're just getting started. --New York Times bestselling author Chuck Wendig S. A. Hunt's Burn the Night is a bold, sharp, fresh take on urban fantasy that brings it into the 21st century. The characters feel real and their flaws make them beautiful. The world building is impressive and immersive, the prose is sharp and tight, and the scary is damn scary. It's a lot of fun! --R. S. Belcher, author of Brotherhood of the Wheel and M. I. B. International (novelization) Immaculate worldbuilding drives this atmospheric series opener from Hunt (Law of the Wolf) . . . With a detailed setting and an ear for dialogue, Hunt captures a distinct feeling of Southern Americana. The cliff-hanger ending is sure to leave readers eager for the next installment. --Publishers Weekly Hunt supplies each character with snappy dialogue and situates the action in a Southern Gothic setting evocative of other supernatural series, such as Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books. Robin is a distinctly modern new heroine, combining classic tropes with twenty-first-century methods. She might be the only hunter in literature to keep her passive income stream in mind while shooting B-roll on the way to confront witches, which is likely to delight readers looking for a new twist in their horror picks. --Booklist
