Every other day, Kali D’Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies (reluctantly). She’s human. And every other day in between . . . she’s not.

Though she’s not quite sure what she is on those days, Kali knows what she does . . . she hunts, traps, and kills demons, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures that threaten her world. On those days, she is practically indestructible.

But when Kali notices a mark on a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by an unworldly being. And she knows she has only twenty-four hours to save her.

There’s only one problem . . . it’s the wrong twenty-four hours.

“Paranormal gets a twist in this entertaining start to a new series about Kali, who alternates between being a normal 16-year-old one day and a vampirish demon hunter the next….Kali is a worthy character to follow: sarcastic and self-sufficient, but also self-deprecating.” —Booklist

School Library Journal

“Kali is a likeable, compelling heroine. Her dual existence rings true to normal teen angst about getting along with parents, making friends, and surviving high school.” —School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

“This science-fiction story adopts a fairly standard mad-scientist premise but ends up coming across just as much a paranormal adventure, with its focus on monsters and telepathy. Lonely Kali’s responses to her new friends add some pathos to the story, but the main focus remains on suspense, well delivered.” —Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“Fans of adult-oriented urban fantasy should enjoy this as much as teens looking for a contemporary Buffy.” —Publishers Weekly
