In a world predicated on belief, what happens to the girl trying to be beneath everyone’s radar? Shane Valentine never realized how much she needed other people until accidentally getting brutally murdered and resurrected by a daemon. Now she has to keep out of sight of other daemons until Gideon can restore her or time runs out.
Gideon--a body thief whom Shane thought she had eliminated--escapes from his prison and seeks out the young woman who put him there.

Distressed by his reemergence, Shane, reticent heir to Gideon’s stewardship, seeks to avoid him. Then an angel shows up, asking after the Purging, a plague that eradicated most supernatural beings nearly a century prior. Shortly thereafter, a powerful flu strikes the impervious Shane. Gideon realizes the Purging is back to finish the daemons, taking with it many humans as collateral damage. However, Shane wants nothing to do with him, instead trying to ferret out her own via research, a Heavenly weapon, an alternative rock band, and a trip through Gideon’s heinous past.
When one dresses largely in black and belongs to a Wiccan coven on campus, having an older boyfriend who thinks he is a vampire almost makes sense. However, when Roselyn’s lover Dryden becomes an actual vampire—albeit a reticent one—and her preternatural roommate Shane is mistakenly taken hostage in her place, it is up to Roselyn to take on the cockroaches of the daemonic world without ending up on the wrong side of a pair of fangs.
All Jasmine wanted was a calm summer in Pine Bush. When she sees a UFO her first night home from college, she is willing to brush it off as swamp gas reflected off Venus, until two men arrive at her door to harass her into silence about a picture she did not take. Soon she realizes Men in Black may be the least of her worries and that ignoring the Grays and their plans for her will only embolden them. If she doesn’t figure out why she is so interesting to aliens, Men in Black, and a mysterious man who seems to brush off harm, she may not have an autumn to look forward to.
