Night Owls bookstore always keeps a light on and evil creatures out. But, as Lauren M. Roy's thrilling sequel continues, even its supernatural staff isn't prepared for the dead to come back to life... Elly grew up training to kill things that go bump in the night, so she's still getting used to working alongside them. While she's learned to trust the eclectic group of vampires, Renfields, and succubi at Night Owls bookstore, her new job guarding Boston's most powerful vampire has her on edge--especially when she realizes something strange is going on with her employer, something even deadlier than usual... Cavale isn't thrilled that his sister works for vampires, but he's determined to repair their relationship, and that means trusting her choices--until Elly's job lands all of the Night Owls in deep trouble with a vengeful necromancer. And even their collective paranormal skills might not be enough to keep them from becoming part of the necromancer's undead army...
