Laiel Brockade is missing. He has been, for close to a year, although it’s only just now that most of his friends and allies are realizing it. That’s what happens when you’re a son of the Devil, with an unlisted phone number. But now, they’re on the case. And with the Devil’s Reapers motorcycle gang, the unshakable detective Ben Arlington, the immortal assassin Cupideau Ahmee Etienne, even Laiel’s apprentice Andy, as well as one new-crowned shadow Prince searching for him, it’s only a matter of time before the man is found and brought out into the light.
But the children of the Devil don’t do well in bright light, and Laiel has finally realized just how small of a chess piece he is on the really big gameboard. His opponents have made their moves. Now it’s time for Laiel and his coven to start making some of their own.
