Half-human Cal Leandros and his brother, Niko, aren-t exactly prospering with their preternatural detective agency.

A malevolent evil with ancient powers is picking off humans like sheep, dead-set on making history with an orgy of blood and murder. And for Cal and Niko, this is one paycheck they-re going to have to earn.
