a victim in plain sight, Bo is exposed to the world of the Fae,
creatures of legend and folklore living undetected amongst humans. Once
she discovers her true being as a succubus, Bo is forced to choose
allegiance between the Dark or Light clans of Fae. Instead, Bo goes
rogue, refusing to belong to any world other than human.
