Just when Nix gets settled into a little girl named Callie in a nondescript Californian town, a family of paranormal hunters comes knocking on the door. The potential for the kind of questions that could end in exposure—or worse, an exorcism—is too high to ignore.
One of the hunters is a nineteen-year-old girl, sweet as apple pie and twice as naive, and too perfect an opportunity to pass up. Rachel fits worse than Callie, loose in all the wrong places, but all Nix needs to do is lead the hunters away—and give Rachel and her adopted brother a dirty little secret to keep—then disappear.
Of course, nothing's ever that easy. Nix regrets stealing Rachel almost as soon as she does it. Caught inside a hunter, Nix is damned if she leaves and double damned if she stays—though damnation is pretty rhetorical for a demon. To make matters worse, the idiot hunters are wrapped up in some nasty plot to destroy the world. Nix has objections to that sort of nonsense.
Nix isn’t the hero the world deserves, but she’s the hero it’s damn well going to get.
