Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth — a would-be creator is determined to make his (or her) own demons....
Rachel Morgan: A witch who has discovered that her abilities and lineage come from demons. She used to be an Inderland Security service member. She, Ivy, and Jenks run a freelance runner service called Vampiric Charms.
Trent Kalamack: Wealthy and influential Elf. Recently out as an elf, politician.
Jenks: Rachel's pixy partner, recently widowed. He has a new increased lifespan due to a spell/curse used by Rachel in a former book to increase his size to human size. Owns the deed to Rachel's graveyard and garden.
Ivy Tamwood: Living vampire, Rachel's roommate and co-owner of the independent runner business run out of the co-owned church turned home and business office. Related to a powerful vampire family, Ivy looks to be a very powerful vamp when she becomes an undead. Wants to save her soul and thinks Rachel can help.
Algaliarept: Demon who finds Rachel in the first book of the series, and takes her home for a price - the price is a demon mark. Over the series, the two fight a tug of war of power between the demon and the ever-after, and Rachel's status as an earth witch. By this time in the series, Rachel is now known to be a demon, but the child of a witch, still retaining her earth and ley line witch abilities.
“Trent! Don’t hurt him! He’s my bodyguard!” “My god, I forgot how heavy you are. I know he’s your bodyguard. What’s he doing carting you out your church over his shoulder? Oh, I’m sorry. Did I interrupt some sort of dominance foreplay?”
“I’ll do it, I don’t care how much it hurts.” “I knew you would.” “What are you laughing at?” “You. God, Rachel it’s not going to hurt that bad. The way I hear it you’ve had worse.” “Not intentionally. You’re just sulking because you got pwned by an elf.”
“You kill people all the time and I hate it.” “And you can’t. Someday you’ll thank me for that particular skill. I’m not proud I have that ability but I’m glad I have it and you’re alive because of it. I’m not asking for gratitude but stop rubbing my nose in the ugly things I do to help you that you are afraid to do yourself.”
