The compendium of creations (SingleEarth, the Bruja guilds, the Midnight empire) intertwine in an exciting, unsettling plot featuring happenings both accidental and deliberate that will forever change the alternate landscape inhabited by vampires, Tristes, shapeshifters et al. It all begins with a wrong turn and a crashed party, and from there it's an epic clash of elements and the promise of more chaos still to come. At the center of the storm is Jay, a young vampire hunter that no one would ever have predicted might be earth's best bet to thwart the rise of a vampire-controlled slave empire called Midnight. Teens will find themselves drawn to Jay, who struggles to prove his worth even while he has his own fears that those who have written him off may be right to do so.

Gr 9 Up–Strong-willed Jay Marinitch is a vampire hunter living in an intriguing world full of Tristes, shape-shifters, and other supernatural beings. Jay, 19, is a witch and part of SingleEarth, an organization whose purpose is to maintain the peace and keep the multitude of species in balance. In his search for answers surrounding the discovery of an unconscious woman, Jay accidentally releases an angry elemental, a being that “gain[s] power through the mortals bound to [it],” who is bent on revenge. He also uncovers disturbing information about the resurgence of Midnight, a vampire-controlled slave empire. To combat impending chaos, Jay partners with some unlikely allies. While full of mysterious characters, compelling mythology, and intricate plot twists and turns, this involved story can be confusing and leaves many questions unanswered. Readers should be familiar with Atwater-Rhodes's past works since previous characters are mentioned or make appearances, which can complicate things.
