Jaz is no longer in a hurry. Working as a consultant has its perks, and one of them is the option to say, 'No I don't feel like killing anybody for you this week. Call me at the end of June.' If I'm still alive. Because by then she'd be finished with her trip to Hell, where she would've carved Brude's name into its bile-encrusted gates. Or lost her soul. For now she and Vayl are content to wait for Raoul's signal that the time is ripe, while playing hide-and-seek in Vayl's massive Victorian manor. That is, until their doorbell rings, just as Cassandra calls to warn Jaz that Vayl is about to be staked by his long lost son. Jaz quickly stops this from happening, but finds herself pulled into a tangled web that takes the gang to Romania. So how will Jaz save a ghost, rescue a demon and cheat the Great Taker out of a soul he's slavering for while defeating her nastiest foe yet so that Vayl can, at last, cherish a few precious years with his sons? With careful planning, major violence, and one (hopefully) final trip to Hell.
