But someone -- or something -- starts killing vampires, werewolves and other paranormals, and Evie must figure out what's happening before they all disappear. Then a shapeshifter named Lend breaks into the agency, and Evie is irresistibly drawn to him, even though he makes her aware that the IPCA is not as noble as she once thought. With everything Evie believes suddenly called into question, the IPCA is attacked and she must choose who she can really trust. And when Evie discovers she's part of a faerie prophecy of death and destruction! so much for normal.
