"Can love really travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria's curse? I'd like to think so. But there are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can."

What's a demi-demon to do when the Queen of all Witches decides you're her new it girl?
I'm Linzie Hellborne. A black leather wearing half-demon/half-witch neither side of my DNA wants to claim. I guess that makes me the perfect candidate for a covert mission to Bumfuck Bayou. An armpit in the middle of the swamp where nefarious activities have caught the attention of the Goddess. Or at least that's what the queen of all witches, the Baba Yaga, AKA Carol, believes after she and her buddy Roy Bermangoggleshitz ambushed me at my BFF Tabitha's wedding. My mission? Uncover the source of the shenanigans and report back. Tabitha warned dabbling with my dark side was dangerous. But I don't know which is worse, heading to a swamp to trap an illegal blood ring, or that my cover requires that I wear pastels. Either way, I'm headed to Mosquitoville to catch a different kind of bloodsucker. Care to come along?
★ Librarian by day. Badass Soul Keeper by night ★
Finding out I was a Keeper was a shocker. A freaking baptism by fire for my fortieth birthday, complete with rogue reapers and hot flashes from hell. I’m Louisa Jericho. I keep reapers away from the newly departed, protecting souls on their journey to their next wild ramble.
While I wouldn’t go straight to fun, being a Keeper has its moments. Plus, I get to keep my day job. Research librarians have a knack for connecting the dots. A knack I hope helps me figure out why a ghost washed up on shore locked in a strange box, with nothing but a skeleton key for a clue.
And not just any ghost. A fellow Keeper.
Which is why I’m pacing a hole in the sand in front of the Angel of Death’s beach house. Who is this captive Keeper? And what does this strange key unlock?
Never a dull moment. Even when it starts out like any other day at the beach...
