"When Maddy finally killed her father, Azazel, she thought his depraved experiment died with him. But now Chicago has been infested with vampires immune to the effects of the sun, and the bloodbath is worse than she could have ever imagined. While the Agency refuses to interfere with other supernatural courts, Maddy is determined to do everything within her power to save her city, wings or no wings. But when the leader of the vampires requests that she turn herself in or risk more deaths, Maddy becomes a target for the very people she's trying to save. Left with no other choice, she turns to Lucifer, the one creature who has the power to help her. But her grandfather's aid has always come at a price."--P. [4] of cover.

A protagonist who is't particularly intelligent. She reacts, with her emotions, and endangers friends for her whims and neuroses. A really bad leader. It's hard to see what allegedly draws allies to her.
Oh, and she's puritanical. Because that is still considered a virtue. Save me from pedestrian authors.

Can't wait for the next installment.

Oooh, the monster in the water, Lucifer and Puck, all related. Can this get any better? I am not impressed with the romantic twists and turns in this one, however.

This one falls a little short of the mark. It must be a challenge this far into a series to keep it fresh & interesting but the constant sturm und drang gets a bit tiring, stretching credibility even in an urban fantasy.
