The Descendant and the Demon's Fork is the third installment in the Max and the Gatekeeper series.

The third installment of the Max and the Gatekeeper series delves even more into the minds of the enemies, and this time, Max and his friends must fight to keep them from taking over the world from New York City. Will he be able to defeat them in time before more towns are destroyed? And is it good or bad that one enemy faction seems to be as interested as he is in finding the other?

This was another fun kids and YA book from James Todd Cochrane. I know first-hand of many kids that really enjoyed
