Kelly McGinnis has spent her adult life trying to do the right thing, but as a newly down-sized mother of twins and the wife of a man living with Muscular Sclerosis, she also knows that trying isn’t always enough.
While interrupting a scene of police brutality, Kelly unwittingly releases a real, live demon. After she manages to kill the creature through gut instinct and blind luck, she is approached to join a secret group of demon hunters who reveal an underworld of monsters and magic. Kelly’s mill town upbringing proves an unexpected asset and the pay more than covers her husband’s treatments, but the work begins to undermine her sense of right and wrong as she struggles to maintain her ‘normal’ life.
When she encounters Umber, a compelling incubus with an unexpectedly human story, Kelly learns that the truth is far stranger and more terrifying than she imagined.

Let’s start at the end and go to the beginning. Yes, that’s what this book does and it’s intriguing. It captured my interest right away and throughout the whole story. An ordinary family with an extraordinary mother — she fights monsters! If you’re a bored mommy, or generally any woman who feels like you’re missing some excitement in your life, follow the adventures of Kelly. Kelly is a recently laid-off housewife with two young school-age twins and a husband disabled by multiple sclerosis. Like many families in our economy, she wonders how they’ll pay all the bills. Fortune finds her in the form of a gift horse. After witnessing two violent murders that she accidentally participated in, she’s asked to join a team of experts. One that finds and destroys unbelievable evil-beings with all the best equipment and tools, including supernatural means. It’s interesting to follow Kelly’s progress as she learns the ropes and enhances her natural abilities to protect her children, her family, and the world.
