They call it Deadtown- the city's quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its borders-but Victory Vaughan, Boston's only professional demon slayer, isn't exactly human . . . Vicky's demanding job keeping the city safe from all manner of monsters is one reason her relationship with workaholic lawyer (and werewolf) Alexander Kane is in constant limbo. Throw in a foolhardy zombie apprentice, a mysterious, demon-plagued client, and a suspicious research facility that's taken an unwelcome interest in her family, and Vicky's love life has as much of a pulse as Deadtown's citizens. But now Vicky's got bigger thing to worry about. The Hellion who murdered her father ten years ago has somehow broken through Boston's magical protections. This ruthless force of destruction has a personal grudge against Vicky, and she's the only one who can stop it before it destroys the city. 'Full of dangerous magic and populated with characters so realistic they almost jump off the page.' Ilona Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of On the Edge

This is the first book in this series. It was a little hard for me to get interested in the story, but after a while, I did enjoy the plot. Living in the Boston, MA area, I enjoyed seeing different cities that I am familiar with mentioned. I am looking forward to the next book in this series and am hoping that it holds my interest from the beginning to the end.
