What's the difference between a social studies teacher and a flesh-hungry demon? 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.
Maybe Angie should have asked more questions about why her new house was
so cheap, but the Victorian fixer-upper had lots of potential and
promised an engrossing DIY project to distract her from the miserable
end of her marriage.
