Plot Summary

Lorelei didn't watch the normalcy of her life vanish quietly when Jared Kovach arrived in town. No, the ordinary, everything she knew about her day to day reality was smashed into a million sparkling lights. Now she is left in the dark... and the strange.

Brooklyn, Lorelei's best friend, is bent on helping Lorelei wield her supernatural abilities, but Lorelei can't ignore the fact that in her body is also the growing presence of Satan's second in command. Also hard to ignore is her budding new crush on the Angel of Death.

If only the drama stopped there, but no, something malevolent lurks around the corner, and has come to town specifically to strangle the life from Lorelei. Yes the gang has a champ with supernatural powers, but what will happen when this hero changes sides in the middle of the challenge? Can this motley crew capture one of the most power beings in history? Can they bring about Jared's return, before it is too late... for all of them?

Publisher Summary

In New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones's Death, Doom and Detention, the normal part of Lorelei MacAlister's life didn't just slip away quietly the day Jared Kovach came to town. Nope. The normal part of her life shattered. It exploded. It burst into a gazillion shards of fleeting light.

It went out with a bang.

Goodbye normal.

Hello dark and eerie.

While her best friend, Brooklyn, is focusing all of her energy on helping Lorelei hone her abilities, Lorelei is dealing with the reality that Satan's second in command has taken up residence inside her body. Oh, and the fact that she has a crush on the Angel of Death. But what a beautiful death it is. If those weren't bad enough, something sinister has come to town and it wants nothing more than to hear Lorelei's dying breath as it strangles it out of her. Thank goodness the gang has a supernatural champion. But what happens when the only being who can save them switches sides midstream? How can a group of misfits capture one of the most powerful beings ever created? And will they find out how to bring Jared back to them before it's too late?
