Tori Moss is no stranger to heartbreak. Raised by a foster mother since the deaths of her parents in a horrific accident, she’s poured herself into ballet. A disappointing audition sends her into an emotional tailspin, but it’s the strangely intriguing new guy in school who catches her as she falls. Although Tori and Raven seem to be nothing alike, they share an uncommon ability to see the sudden flood of demons pouring into Los Angeles. When she discovers a plot to bring about the Apocalypse, Tori must decide whom to trust. One wrong step may cost her everything.
Hissing and spitting, the demon loped across the grass with its claws extended. Pen in hand, Raven waited until the imp sprang toward him. At the apex of the creature’s jump, Raven rammed the silver shaft into its eye, shattering the demon into ash.
“Hell is empty and all the devils are here,” he muttered.
As he returned the pen to his pocket, a gasp made him turn. To his dismay, Tori stood there — her expression one of shock and disbelief.
He feigned nonchalance. “Er, hello. I thought you’d gone home.”
“You just killed a demon.”
Nervous perspiration formed in Raven’s armpits. How much should I tell her? “Technically, I sent it back to Hell. But for all intents and purposes, yes.”
“That pen — it’s silver, isn’t it?”
“Yes. It was a gift from my father.”
“And what you said just now — ”
“From The Tempest.”
“Why did you say it?”
“No reason.” The inscription was common on Shakespearean weapons, but Raven didn’t want to open that particular can of worms. “It seemed appropriate at the time.”
“Before that, you said…Macbeth.”
“Shh!” The can of worms is officially open now. Raven glanced around to make sure no other demons had been called. “Nobody who can see demons should utter the ‘M’ word unless they want to provoke an attack. I mean, it’s bad enough when regular people say it. You should substitute ‘The Scottish Play’ instead.”
