Civilized Demons and Hell Featured in Jon David's Debut Novel THE SAVAGE PEAK

S For Story/10429975
LIVONIA, Mich. - s4story -- The Morgalla Chronicles is a young adult series by debut author Jon David that follows the life of Morgalla, a teen with a good heart and a dark secret. She's a demon from hell. Nobody's perfect.

When Morgalla and her mentor are forced to abandon their sanctuary on a far-off world, they must return to the realm of hell. The only problem is teen Morgalla has never been around her own kind before, and she's finding she doesn't fit in. Smaller than the average demon, she not only holds contradictory views to her own culture, she possesses a unique talent most demons don't have. When her mentor makes a life-changing decision for her, Morgalla finds herself on the run on another world as she tries to adapt and fit into a culture where both demons and humans coexist.

"I wanted to write a unique take on demons and hell," says author Jon David. "I wondered what would happen if a demon of moral character existed. Demons are naturally violent, but every family has its black sheep. I used that as the basis for creating Morgalla."
