Four years ago, crime beat reporter Riley O’Rourke changed the world. To be fair, it wasn’t entirely her fault.
She and her mentor, a 3,000-year-old vampire, accidentally destroyed the Tucson police headquarter’s building during a fight with a sorcerer. After footage of the fight went viral on the internet, Riley changed into a black jaguar on live TV. The existence of Preternaturals—vampires, witches, and other were-animals like Riley—was revealed, and humans went a little crazy. Only an act of Congress stopped the resulting chaos.
Not all the Preternaturals are happy with this new world order, however. The Queen of the Winter Fae, worries that exposing her hidden world will destroy it, and sends the nastiest storybook characters imaginable to kill Riley before she can out the Fair Folk, too.
The Summer Queen promises to protect Riley if she does her a teeny favor: break into the Winter castle, sneak past creatures straight out of Riley’s nightmares, steal a magical mirror, and return it. All without the Winter Queen noticing.
Riley agrees to the favor—what choice does she have? But dealing with the Fae is always a double-edged sword, and the Summer Queen neglected to tell Riley that if she successfully pulls off this heist, the entire world might just end up on the edge of destruction.
