"Wickedly funny!" ~New York Times bestselling author, Melanie James P.B. Noble is so ready to become the magical Guardian of the City of Boston…until she stumbles across the murder-in-process of the current Guardian. Her rescue attempt is a total fail, and puts her face-to-face with the GoD of Evil, a bad guy so nasty that he isn't even supposed to exist. Guess what? He does. And he's worse than anyone realizes. And, to top it off, his real target isn't the Guardian he just killed. It's P.B. When P.B. decides not to join the GoD of Evil in his psychotic world peace plan, he puts on the pressure by kidnapping her bestie, torturing an immortal warrior that just might be her first chance at true love, and completely screwing up the opening night of her new magical night club. If P.B. refuses to join him, everything that matters to her will be destroyed. But if she does cave to his demands, then the entire world will be annihilated. It's a tough call, really, but what's an overmatched, undertrained interim Guardian to do? Go for the option he didn't offer, which is to align with a slightly demented werewolf, recruit her all-too-human celebrity ex-boyfriend, and turn her less-than-impressive magical talent into a weapon. Or die. That's an option too. Unfortunately.
