Exhausted, cynical, and confused, Anna is always there to report for duty. She's part of a clandestine government team that fights supernatural terrorism—a job that understandably leaves her personal life in shambles. Waking up in her hungover at five-thirty in the morning with a zombie-infested apartment building near DC to deal with, she knows she's got the makings of the worst morning possible. Her team is its own challenge. A battle-scarred Nigerian shaman, a bookish shape-shifter, an inept summoner, and a brilliant but cantankerous wizard round it out. Her partner, a cursed Paladin, is the only person she knows more jaded than herself. Their target is Ethan Morgan, a necromancer. His brother was a soldier and the victim of an experimental magical weapon they tested on the battlefield. Bent on revenge and sponsored by one of Hell's most powerful demons, Ethan has a plan. Anna and her team are fighting against the wake of destruction, but Ethan always seems one step ahead.
