In the dark, rainy town of St. Ives, twenty-two-year-old Te Evangeline works for paranormal investigator Babu Cherian. The work isn’t very dangerous—Te’s not sure she even believes in the supernatural. But she knows that her father believed enough to work as Babu’s partner, until he died mysteriously five years ago.
Since then, St.Ives has been relatively quiet. But when a friend of Babu’s is murdered under impossible circumstances, Te learns that the dead man was keeping an ancient power at bay, and the creature he was guarding has escaped. Now Te and Babu must track down what killed him, and capture it before it can unleash an evil as old as time.
As Te’s investigations lead her into the darkest corners of the city, uncanny signs point to this death being linked to her father’s. Te is beginning to believe in a world where things are not as they seem—where old powers are awakening and realities shifting, and where Te may find that she herself is somehow stranger and more powerful than she ever imagined.
