My name's Quinn. If you buy into my reputation. I'm the most notorious demon hunter in New England. But rumors of my badassery have been slightly exaggerated. Instead of having kung fu skills and a closetful of medieval weapons, I'm an ex-junkie with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time. Or the right place at the wrong time. Or . . . whatever. Wanted for crimes against inhumanity that I (mostly) didn't commit, I was neatly a midnight snack for a werewolf until I was saved by a vampire calling itself the Bride of Quiet.

Amber Benson 'Deeply, wonderfully, magnificently nasty.' Neil Gaiman'Caitlin R. Kiernan draws her strength from the most honourable of sources, a passion for the act of writing.' Peter Straub'Caitlin Kiernan is a master of dark fantasy.' New York Timesbestselling author Holly Black
