"Treat yourself to a splendid new urban fantasy... I am looking forward to the next book in the series, or anything else Ilona Andrews writes." – Patricia Briggs, USA Today bestselling author of Blood Bound.

Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for magic...

When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while the guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic receeds as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate's guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta's magic circles.

The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizzare killings – and the death of Kate's guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the kiler, Kate realizes she's way out of her league – but she wouldn't have it any other way...
