Just before the start of Chris's senior year of high school, he and his friends, Al and Katie, are forced to flee the Circle of Six, an evil group of men intent on revenge. Chris's boyhood crush, Hope, is the only person capable of shielding the trio from the men's incessant cyber tracking long enough to unravel clues from Chris's invisible guardian, known to them only as the warden.
Tensions build as the FBI pursues Al and Katie for the murder of one of the evil men, culminating in the arrest of the teens' parents. Deception by the Circle of Six has the authorities convinced the three families are part of a terrorist organization. Civil protections crumble as jurisdiction shifts from the FBI to the DOD.
To reach Chris, the Circle of Six crash into Hope's world. Formidable in cyberspace, she's vulnerable in the physical world. Racing to avoid imminent capture, the four youths come face to face with a demon sent by the Circle of Six whose very creation dates back to the opening pages of No Such Thing as Evil. Confronting the threat, Chris glimpses a shrouded side of the warden.
Evil Alive is the thrilling second installment of the Circle of Six trilogy.
