When monsters appear in Los Angeles, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except her dad, who disappeared without a trace in the middle of an assignment.

Now an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie's uncle is working with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans.

The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical objects and a secret that vanished with Maggie's father.

    I wasn’t sure what to make of what would turn out to be an addicting story. At first I thought the writing was a bit aimed towards the pre-teen to late-teen crowd and that I wouldn’t enjoy it, but as I continued to read, I was enveloped by the witty remarks, innuendos, and a story that kept me curious up until the end. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, if not all of it!
  • Great story

    Within the first chapter I felt like I 'knew' Maggie and that she had been at her job and was comfortable with it. The author writes in a way that made me feel like I already knew enough about the two main characters and the setting so that any new information was just a casual reference to common facts. There was a few things that were brought up as 'fun facts' from an expert tracker to the general populace but it was generally an easy read. The main character, Maggie, is given a well described family background that perhaps needs another book before the relationships feel resolute, but the plot (adventure) is non-stop and doesn't get side-tracked by gratuitous sex, romance, or unrelated side-plots. That doesn't mean that there isn't some related joking by the characters :-D. I particularly appreciated that no main character made stupid mistakes or whined with never-ending angst over previous actions that later became mechanisms to forward the action and that while there is room to create a series afterwards, this story completely finished at the end of the book.
  • Fun

    I really like the grittiness of the main character, Maggie. Loved reading a book with lots of action and character tension. But without all the standardized sex to keep readers interested. The story and character developments keep me reading not the sexual titillations.
