Half-werewolf/half-Aedh Risa Jones knows she has spent too long searching for keys that control the gates of heaven and hell. When Wolfgang Schmidt, the lover of Risa’s boss at the vampire council, is found dead and drained, she realizes that some of hell’s darkest powers have made their way into the world, and she is the only person who can stop them. Assisted by reaper Azriel, Risa tracks the key — right into the clutches of Lucian, whom Risa once loved and has now sworn to kill. (SIGNET SELECT, Jun., 400 pp., $7.99)
