A travel writer takes a job with a shady publishing company in New York, only to find that she must write a guide to the city – for the undead!

Because of the disaster that was her last job, Zoë is searching for a fresh start as a travel book editor in tourist-centric New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position though, Zoë is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can’t take off her resume – human.

Not to be put off by anything – especially not her blood-drinking boss or death-goddess coworker – Zoë delves deep into the monster world. But her job turns deadly when the careful balance between human and monsters starts to crumble – with Zoë right in the middle.
