Reviewer: Tyson

Synopsis: "Heaven under siege, Scarlett finds herself in the middle of a war as angels slaughter angels. (Warning: Do not read Betrayal before Resurrection as the story might spoil the end of Resurrection.)

Betrayal is a short story told from the viewpoint of Scarlett. It details the events leading up to the third Demon Squad book, At the Gates, out December 1st from Damnation Books.

A bonus story, Prohibition Black and Blues is included, featuring Frank "Triggaltheron" Trigg in the Roaring Twenties."

Betrayal is the short story that sets up book number three in the Demon Squad series. It takes place between Resurrection and At The Gates.

The story takes place immediately following book two but catapults you into the action that sets up book number three. Scarlett comes calling on Frank Trigg and warns him of the danger facing Heaven.

Without giving too much away, Betrayal is just as good as any of Marquitz's full novels. With one minor complaint. It ends far to quickly. Once you finish Betrayal, you will want to start At The Gates straightaway.

There is also another bonus story entitled Prohibition Black, which was a nice change of pace as you see Trigg in a different time period, The Roaring Twenties. It was a nice little story and I would not mind if this time period were explored some more in the future.
