Sunset

Ever since Julia Stokes was a little girl, she's wanted to become a teacher and escape her rural Illinois town in favor of the big city. She accomplished her goals after college, but a year later, she's back home, sleeping in the bedroom across the hall from her parents again. She had no choice after her ex-boyfriend stole her identity and gambled away her money.

Just as Julia is trying to put her life back together, a night out with friends ends with an attack by a rogue demon. She survives the attack, but at a high price. She discovers that her dull hometown is actually teeming with a dizzying array of monsters – and now she's one of them. As Julia struggles to come to grips with her new life, an unexpected and desirable guide emerges to introduce her to the underworld that she has become part of. She refuses to dwell on that time back in high school when he dumped her before prom.
