He already decided he really needed to figure out just what was going on here, whether there even was something here…it was the smart thing to do. The logical thing.
If You Know Her (Ash Trilogy, Book 3)
The adult thing. But as he breathed in, her scent him, low and hard, spreading through him, heating his already overheated blood, fogging an already fogged brain. She lifted a hand, rested it on his chest. Not looking to sell me anything, are you? Nia chuckled against his lips, then she pulled back and stared into his eyes. Instead, he jammed one hand into a pocket, closed it in a fist. The other, he used the tip of his finger and used it to lift her chin. Still, that one taste blistered through him, rushed through him, setting his blood to boil. Book 3 He already decided he really needed to figure out just what was going on here, whether there even was something here…it was the smart thing to do.
Meanwhile, Kelly and Pablo are lost in the woods but find a group of hikers consisting of Brad Ido Drent , his wife Melissa Indiana Evans , and their friend Heather Samara Weaving , who lead them toward the cabin. At the cabin, Ash is taunted by the severed head of his old girlfriend Linda that he left in the work shed three decades ago. In the cabin, Amanda listens to the old tape recorder about the Necronomicon.
Ash suddenly appears and tells her that they should just leave and be together, but Amanda notices his putrid hand and he attacks her.

She kills Brad and Melissa and Heather breaks her leg. Ruby arrives and Amanda runs off. Returning to the cabin, Ruby confronts Ash, introducing herself as the one who has been cleaning up his mess. She explains that the book cannot be simply buried but needs to be dismantled. Ash agrees to destroy the book and cuts off its face, but once he hands it over Ruby begins a ritual to unleash the evil upon the entire world. Ruby claims to have written the Necronomicon and the face of the book animates and attaches itself to Pablo.
Before Ash can react to what is going on, Amanda returns and attacks him. He manages to defeat her but notices Ruby and Pablo have disappeared into the cellar. He goes down to find them but the Kandarian force pounds the cabin and Ash falls down the steps. He suddenly finds himself back in his trailer with the Necronomicon. Ruby appears and tells him that he was destined to stand against her, and then tries to broker a truce by offering him what he desires the most — a peaceful retirement in Jacksonville.
Refusing the offer, Ash finds himself back in the cellar and under attack by a demonic child that was belched up by Pablo who is under the control of the Necronomicon. Meanwhile, Kelly and Heather attempt to survive a demonic onslaught. Heather is killed while Kelly is locked out of the cabin. Ash again confronts Ruby, who promises to leave Ash and his friends alone in exchange for allowing her to release evil spirits which she claims she can control from the Necronomicon.
Ash accepts the deal and starts driving to Jacksonville with Kelly and Pablo, while sinkholes begin to open up around the world. While enjoying his time at Jacksonville, Ash is forced to come out of retirement after being attacked by Deadites summoned by Ruby. Ash still in possession of the Kandarian Dagger , Pablo and Kelly return to Ash's hometown in Michigan, Elk Grove, where they meet up with his father, Brock Lee Majors , who criticizes him for running away from the town after the events that transpired 30 years ago. While searching around town for Ruby, Ash encounters his former love, Linda Bates, who is married to the town's sheriff, Thomas Emery.
Emery mocks Ash, and promises to take him in when he can. Pablo receives a vision, prompting the gang to head to the town's crematorium, where Ash finds an injured Ruby, claiming that her children have betrayed her, forcing her to hide the Necronomicon. After saving her from her three demon children, Ash and Ruby form a temporary alliance. Ruby reveals to the group that she hid the Necronomicon inside a corpse at the town morgue, which prompts Ash and Kelly to go retrieve it, while Pablo stays with her at Brock's house in order to find out about his visions.
While attempting to get the book, Ash discovers that his old high school P. Ash returns home just in time to stop the Deadite from raising hell. Meanwhile, Pablo's grasp on reality is tested when Ruby reveals that the Necronomicon has gifted him with premonitions , a detail seen in one from which Ruby deduces that her ex-husband, Baal, is the reason behind why all of her children have turned on her. At the end, Ash's car, the Delta, is stolen by two teenagers, while still carrying the Necronomicon in it.
Noelle Valdivia. In an attempt to lure the teenagers who stole his car to his place, Ash and his best buddy, Chet, devise a plan to throw a party at the bar, lure the thieves in, and get the Delta and the Necronomicon back. The plan backfires, however, as one of the teenagers' friends accidentally reads from the Necronomicon, allowing evil to possess her as well as the Delta, leading to a mass killing spree. The possessed teenager, Amber, heads to Ash's party, where she almost kills Brock before Ash intervenes. Brock realizes the truth about his son and shows his pride, but before he could reveal a secret to Ash, he is run over by the Delta.
Meanwhile, Ruby attempts to convince Kelly that she is the one Ruby was supposed to be looking for. The possessed Delta continues its rampage holding one of the teenagers, Lacey, hostage. It comes back and kidnaps Pablo as well. Ash takes Chet in tow, driving his car and pursues the Delta. Meanwhile, Ruby and Kelly head back to Ash's trailer to pick up weapons, where Ruby reveals that Baal can get into an individual's mind and manipulate them, and that she has been manipulated before. While they go back to the crematorium and kill the rest of her spawn, Ash continues chasing down Pablo, and Chet drops him off at an abandoned Demolition derby park.
The Delta lets go of Pablo and Lacey, facing Ash by itself. While Pablo tries to deface the book, it tells him to read a passage. Ash stops the Delta, and they throw the book into the trunk of the car, a portal to hell, seemingly destroying it. Ruby, sensing the book's disappearance, runs back along with Kelly. A demon jumps out of the trunk at the end. Baal arrives on Earth and seduces a police officer before killing her and removing her skin.
Ash is arrested for Amber's murder but is freed from his cell by Baal, disguised as the police officer. Before going to look for the Kandarian Dagger, Ruby warns the group of Baal's ability to disguise himself by wearing peoples' skin, which sets the group on edge as they come to realise that any one of them could be Baal. Pablo reveals a strange rash to Ash and Kelly. Seeing Pablo's condition worsen, Emery believes that he is Baal, leading him to pull out his gun and threaten the group. Ruby returns with Ash's weapons and Ash defeats the reanimated flesh of a fallen police officer.
On examining Pablo's rash, Ruby declares that he might be their only chance to stop Baal. Ash, Kelly, Ruby, Linda and Lacey take Pablo back to Ash's house, where Ruby reveals that if they wait long enough, the required spell to send Baal back to hell will emerge on Pablo's skin. Baal uses his powers to convince Emery to lead a mob of Elk Grove townspeople to capture Ash. As the townspeople surround Ash's house, Ash hears a noise coming from Cheryl's room. Inside he sees Chet, who had come to warn him about the mob.
The required spell emerges from Pablo's skin, while Ruby reveals to Kelly that birthing her demon "children" cost her her immortality. A Deadite Cheryl appears and fights Ash, killing Chet in the process. The fight is taken outside, where the townspeople are surprised to see Cheryl, seemingly alive. Ash kills her and reveals her to be a Deadite, thus convincing the people that he is not a murderer. Ash is then knocked out by Baal. Ash wakes up from a nightmare only to find himself in an asylum, where a man calling himself Doctor Peacock claims that Ash has been locked up since the murder of his friends at the cabin, and that everything about the Necronomicon was a delusion he made up to deny responsibility for his actions.
Ash realizes that Peacock is none other than Baal, who is trying to break his mind through an illusion. Within the illusion he sees Ruby as a nurse, Kelly as a fellow inmate, and Pablo as an orderly. Ash attempts to fight through the illusions, but fails time after time. After meeting with Linda and seeing Ruby, Pablo and Kelly arrive outside the asylum, Ash then seemingly agrees to follow Baal's command to destroy the Necronomicon. Lacey, however, turns up as a Deadite and murders Emery, and is later killed by Kelly.
Ruby and Pablo encounter Ash, who then takes Pablo to Baal. Kelly later meets up with Linda, who learns about the deaths of both her husband and daughter. She then resolves to take down Baal for good. They reach Pablo, where Ash reveals that he was never broken by Baal, and it was all part of his plan to get Pablo and Baal in the same room. Pablo then recites the incantation to send Baal back to Hell, but before disappearing, Baal slashes Pablo in the stomach, cutting him in half. Distraught over the loss of Pablo, Ash and the gang attempt to travel back in time to ensure that young Ash will never see the Necronomicon.
They return to the year , before young Ash went to the cabin. As they travel to the woods, the gang is chased down by the Kandarian Demon, and Ruby and Kelly are separated from Ash, who runs into the cabin. After a brief altercation with an evil foetus that attempts to infect Ash from his leg, Ash hears a faint voice crying for help from the cellar.
He finds the voice to be coming from Henrietta Knowby, who claims to have been trapped and tortured here by her husband. While initially not believing her, Ash eventually discovers as Professor Knowby returns with one of his students, Tanya, who he plans to use to transfer the Kandarian Demon from within Henrietta onto her.
Ash then frees Henrietta, just as he realizes he's been tricked, allowing her to run amok. In the midst of the chaos, Professor Knowby escapes with the Necronomicon and locks Ash and Tanya down in the cellar with Henrietta. Meanwhile, Ruby and Kelly are attacked by possessed trees, as well as being followed by a mysterious being. As Professor Knowby attempts to escape the cabin, he is killed by the Ruby of year , who then retrieves the Necronomicon.
Henrietta murders Tanya, and battles Ash, but is ultimately defeated. As Ash reunites with present-day Ruby and Kelly, past Ruby learns of their involvement and then kills present-day Ruby, while Ash and Kelly attempt to escape. The effects of the timeline alteration take place as Ash notices the return of his missing right hand, and Pablo seemingly returning to life.
However, he turns out to be Baal, who has secretly taken over Pablo's corpse rather than being banished. Baal and the alternate Ruby take Ash and Kelly back to the cabin, where they begin to perform rituals to give birth to their spawns. Ash proposes a fair fight between him and Baal, without the use of any magic or weapon.

Baal gains the upper hand by using his powers to change form into Chet, Cheryl and Brock, tricking Ash and removing his right hand once more. As Baal prepares to execute Ash, however, he is outwitted and defeated. As the cabin begins to burn down and crumble, Baal, Ruby, their spawns, and the Necronomicon are seemingly banished to the Neitherworld Hell as part of the deal, while Pablo is brought back to life. Ash returns to his time, where Elk Grove reveres him as a hero, while the alternate Ruby watches him from afar.
In a post-credit scene, the Necronomicon is picked up by an unknown traveler from the remains of the cabin. Mark Verheiden. Ash reunites with Candace Barr, a former lover with whom he had a daughter, Brandy. They find Brandy and her friend Rachel in the music classroom, but a possessed Rachel then attacks and manages to decapitate Candace. Ash kills Rachel and then battles the possessed school mascot, Cougie, but Kelly, along with Dalton, a Knight of Sumeria, arrive and save Ash. Ruby, after retrieving the Necronomicon, performs a ritual, smearing her blood over a drawing of Ash and drinking it, causing her to be impregnated.
While driving on the road, Ruby is forced to stop to give birth to her new demonic spawn, which she claims to be modeled after Ash's image. She kidnaps Natalie, a Norwegian woman and uses her partner's corpse as food to feed the spawn. Ash takes Brandy to school, where she meets up with Ruby, who is disguised as the school's guidance counselor, Ms.
Ruby attempts to persuade her in distrusting Ash. Pablo is visited by a female spirit who warns him of evil taking over his body, and that he must embrace his destiny as the next Brujo. Dalton notices the Sumerian writing on Pablo's body, and attempts to convince Kelly that he must be killed to prevent future risks. Ash later goes to the local sperm bank to investigate whether his sperm had been used, but Ruby summons the Kandarian Demon to the bank to destroy his seeds.
Ash manages to prevail, but realizes that he must now protect Brandy at all cost.
While Ash is attending Candace's funeral, she becomes possessed and fights him. Brandy's distrust for Ash grows further. Ash, upon discovering Ruby's involvement, informs the gang to find the Kandarian Dagger. Pablo receives another vision from the female spirit, pointing them toward the cabin. Pablo, Kelly and Dalton return to the cabin and start digging through the remains; eventually Kelly finds the knife, but the Evil Dead then comes after them and impales Dalton through a tree branch.
He quickly turns Deadite and demands the knife, but Pablo attempts to run him over with a truck. Ruby goes to the cemetery and resurrects Brock Williams, who then returns to his home and meets Brandy.
If You Know Her
Later, Ash returns and has a fight with Brock, ending with the latter being killed right in front of Brandy. Ash is visited by the ghost of the real Brock, who shows him a vision of the past in when he was visited by a Knight of Sumeria, Gary, who carried the missing pages of the Necronomicon. Brock incapacitated the knight and locked him under the hardware store's cellar after thinking he was dead. Back in present day, Ash enters the cellar and finds the knight's skeleton, as well as Sumerian writing on the wall.
Ruby is contacted by the sorceress Kaya, who is imprisoned in the Netherworld. Kaya warns Ruby of the inevitable prophecy and the opening of the Rift. Ruby travels to the Knowby Cabin and finds Dalton, who she temporarily revives in order to learn of what he knew. Dalton reveals to Ruby of their finding of the dagger, but then shoots himself in the head to prevent himself from turning once more.
Kelly returns to Ash's home and finds Brandy, who she attempts to convince to stay.
They are however attacked by Pablo, who has been possessed by the Kandarian Demon. In the ensuing struggle, Pablo bites Kelly in her leg and infects her. The two girls retreat to Ash's trailer and barricade themselves in, but Kelly's infection worsens and mutates further. Ash arrives at Ruby's hideout, where he finds Natalie with Ruby's spawn, which has grown considerably.
Ash tries to break Natalie free, but ends up waking the spawn from its sleep. Pablo manages to enter the trailer, but Brandy stabs him with the Kandarian Dagger. He then finds himself in a realm between life and death, where he meets the Brujo, who explains that Pablo must now perform a ritual to return to life and succeed him. He successfully completes the ritual and comes back to life, but then runs off to find Ash.
Kelly determines to make Ruby pay for what she's done. Meanwhile, at Ruby's hideout, Ash realizes that her spawn is made in his image, and attempts to capture him to prove his story to Brandy. The spawn goes on the loose, and kills Natalie. It attempts to manipulate her corpse to fight Ash but eventually Ash traps it inside. He then takes the spawn to the hardware store, but it manages to consume Natalie's corpse and free itself. He attempts to explain the situation to Brandy and a local police officer, but fails. However, Brandy chooses to believe her father and runs off together with him, leaving the spawn in Ruby's possession once more.
Ash is contacted by a group of Knights of Sumeria, who he then takes to his hardware store to investigate the Sumerian writing. They deduce that the knight who died in the cellar, Gary, had figured out a way to open the gateway to the Deadlands, a dimension between the human world and Neitherworld Hell. Pablo arrives at the store and is able to decipher the text, opening the portal. One of the knights, Marcus, travels through the portal to scout ahead, but comes back a demon and slaughters the rest of the knights except one.
Ash manages to take down the Demon Marcus, then instructs Pablo to find out how to close down the rift for good. Kelly goes to Ruby's hideout with the dagger, intending to kill her, but Ruby overpowers Kelly and kills her with the Kandarian Dagger. She then uses Kelly's body as a vessel for Kaya.
Ash returns home later that night and receives the dagger from Kaya, who now poses as Kelly in order to sabotage Ash's plan. Back at the hardware store, Pablo sees the real Kelly in the Rift through an opening in the Sumerian writing and learns of her death. He rushes to find Ash to break the news. Ash and Kaya take Brandy to the school dance, in hope of confronting Ruby. Unbeknownst to them, Ruby also takes her spawn, now having fully grown into a clone of Ash, to the school in an attempt to break Brandy's trust in her father. Rash Ruby's Ash terrorizes the school and murders many students, fooling Brandy into believing that her father is a demon.
When Ash finally gets to Brandy, Ruby provokes her by plunging herself into Ash's chainsaw and faking her death. However, Brandy can't bring herself to kill Ash. Pablo arrives at the school and encounters Kaya, but manages to escape. He and Rash fight momentarily, before the real Ash kills the clone. Ruby, frustrated at Ash's continuous streak of victory, wakes up and throws the Kandarian Dagger at him, but Brandy blocks the attack by jumping in front of him and dies instead.
She then wakes up in the Deadlands, and runs away from a lurking threat. Ash and Pablo hijack the coroner's van to steal Brandy's body and make it back to the hardware store, where they then use the Kandarian Dagger to kill Ash and send him through the Rift, in hope of rescuing Brandy and Kelly.
At the Deadlands, Brandy finds Kelly and Dalton, who have been evading a shadow creature lurking the dimension and consuming any spirit it comes across. Ash arrives in the Deadlands with both of his hands intact, and finds the other three. They attempt to run for the hardware store, but with the shadow creature blocking their path, Dalton volunteers to sacrifice himself as a distraction. Back at the hardware store, Pablo struggles with one of the possessed corpses from the coroner's van, whom Ash accidentally retrieved instead of Brandy's corpse.
Pablo manages to open the portal in time, but Kelly is unable to make it back due to her body still being used by Kaya. Meanwhile, Kaya captures the surviving knight, Zoe, who Ruby attempts to use in order to help both her and Kaya survive the forthcoming wrath of the Dark Ones. Ruby and Kaya use Zoe's body to make a new page for the Necronomicon, in order to hide their presence from the Dark Ones.
Pablo discovers a connection between him and the Necronomicon, allowing him to see through its eyes. Ash determines to go back to their hideout and end Ruby's life. Pablo goes back to the hardware store only to find the Rift already open. The Dark Ones then come through and take the lost Necronomicon pages from Pablo, but spare his life. Back at Ash's house, Brandy fends off against the invading Kandarian Demon, but in the process, her phone is possessed and bites off her left thumb.
Ash arrives at Ruby's place and attempts to fight them, but is quickly overpowered. Ash returns to town, only to find that the Evil Dead have terrorized it. The Dark Ones reclaim the Necronomicon and chant a spell that summons a sixty-feet-tall creature called Kandar the Destroyer. The Evil Dead begin to terrorize every part of the world, prompting military forces to take action. Ash, Brandy and Pablo take Kelly's body back to the hardware store, where Pablo travels through the Rift to find her while Ash and Brandy fend off the Deadites.
They successfully revive Kelly, but military forces declare they are releasing a nuke to destroy Kandar, which Pablo insists will only make it stronger. Pablo, Kelly and Brandy evacuate with the military, but Ash decides to stay behind. He commandeers a tank, attaches the Kandarian Dagger onto a tank round, and attracts Kandar's attention long enough to be able to fire the round through it, killing it for good.
