From the back cover
Max Abaddon just got his lucky break...kind of.
Max was just having one of those days until he soon realized everything that goes bump in the night is real. Most people inherit a house, a pet, or money. Max Abaddon wasn't so lucky. His Gramps left him a job that required him to learn that magic was real, and he'd better learn how to use it. Soon...
In his new role Max works with a team of eccentric Mages based out of a facility called the Atheneum that has, for a very long time managed the relationship between the normal world and well everything else.
To make matters worse a string of high profile murders ensure his transition is not going to be an easy one. Will the team stop the murderer? Is Max unknowingly part of a bigger scheme? Most importantly will Max be able to have a normal life again and find time for a drink or two at his favorite bar the Fallen Angel?
