Red Bat is the town featured in the novel Troubled Souls as its primary setting. It’s where the Dune Springs Motel resides, along with a creature called Obor; one of the last remaining Nephilim. A group of young demon hunters arrives in the dusty Nebraska town to confront what they believe is a vampire infestation. Soon, they learn what type of demon is really protecting the creature, and their lives — and the town — will never be the same.
The events that occur in Red Bat will haunt the surviving hunters years later, when they reassemble on Bishop’s Island in the novel Heretic.
