Bishop Nigel smiled at me. ‘Holy water doesn’t harm vampires. Which is just as well, as it would make it impossible to baptise them.’
When I was asked by a dragon to give him the last rites, I never dreamed it would lead to negotiating with his cannibalistic family or running from snail sharks. Life as the priest of a small English village is quite tame in comparison. At least I have Morey, a gryphon with sarcasm management issues, to help me. And if all else fails, there’s always red wine and single malt whisky.
As if my life weren’t complicated enough, a darkly beautiful dragon named Raven keeps appearing where I least expect him, I’ve met a handsome police inspector who loves science fiction as much as I do, and my younger brother is getting into trouble for trying to pick up vampires.
That’s what happens when you’re dealing with an incredible and dangerous parallel world full of mythical creatures.
And I have to learn to navigate it all without losing myself, or my brother…

But nobody told the witch that running an administration of evil would be just so… dreary. Bored with solving little people's problems and the petty squabbles of her beastly advisors, the witch quits, leaving the world in a much worse state than she found it with a new evil quest. It's time to learn how to be a good person.
There's just one teensy-tiny little problem… Being good doesn't come easily – after all, it's much easier to sacrifice babies and summon hideous demons to get things done. Seeking out her old nemesis, a legendary-hero-turned-academic (who she only imprisoned and tortured a little bit), she gives him an outlandish proposition: to help her make a dazzling transformation from wicked witch to good. It's an offer he can't refuse. The odd couple have a long, perilous journey ahead of them and a lot of psychological hang-ups to work through.
Can an evil witch ever truly be reformed – and what could possibly go wrong when you're relying on your nemesis to be your BFF?

My life used to be so simple. Get in, outsex a pesky incubus and get out with the cash. The vampires changed that. I hate vampires. Firstly, the Demon Child woke and went on a feeding spree.

Thirdly, the only ones paying me to hunt the Demon Child are a pair of vampires. Nic, the super charismatic motivational speaker and Kisho, who would be the perfect man, if it wasn’t for his vampirism. Oh, and he’s Nic’s bitch, when I want him to be mine. The mayor wants me on his team, I’m under investigation by the Demon Fighter Council - working for the enemy is strictly forbidden - and, for the first time ever, I doubt my ability to get the job done.
