Bobby Roland is at his prime in Solemnity. He has now been the Servant for nearly three years, and he has developed the confidence needed to carry out his work exorcising demons from the possessed. Not much scares him anymore, and he’s begun to move on from some of the things that hurt him deeply when he was younger.
There are many characters who wander in and out of Bobby’s adventures, and the fun thing about writing a series is that I can bring back any of them if I’ve missed writing about them for a while. In Solemnity, Bobby teams up with Joanna Halsey, a woman he briefly met in Servant, as they try to figure out why violent criminals have been rising from the dead throughout Oregon.
Readers get to learn much more about Joanna’s own dark past, which was touched upon in Servant but not gone into in any great depth. Despite her past tragedies, Joanna maintains a sunny disposition and a sense for adventure, which helps offset the gloom-and-doom moods Bobby sometimes finds himself in.
Other things readers may encounter while reading Solemnity include an angry person with mind control powers, a somewhat disturbing music box, and numerous undead persons.
I hope you all enjoy it.

About the book:
In Solemnity, Bobby Roland has stumbled onto a new crisis.
Violent criminals are rising from the dead throughout Oregon—not just in Portland, but in Bobby’s adopted hometown of Autumn Ridge. He teams up with Joanna Halsey, an old acquaintance who knows a few things about the occult, to get to the bottom of the mystery. Together they surmise that these criminals have been brought back to life to complete some terrible task.
Their search for answers takes them to an occultist’s doorstep, where Bobby learns that raising the dead is no difficult feat for those devoted to black magic.
But who would resort to necromancy, and why? Bobby and Joanna must stop them before the dead kill again.
