Aurora West is on the verge of solving the mystery of her mother's death, but it's hard keeping her efforts a secret from her grieving father, the legendary monster-hunter Haggard West. Between her school work and her hours training and hunting with her dad, Aurora is hard-pressed to find time to be a secret sleuth. But she's nothing if not persistent.

From Paul Pope, the legendary creator of Battling Boy, teamed up with JT Petty and David Rubín, comes the nail-biting sequel to The New York Times bestselling The Rise of Aurora West!
