Numi is a storyteller living in a town with a secret. But she doesn’t know that. All she knows is it’s been a shoddy week.
When Numi’s mother dies, a dead woman begins haunting her home, Numi’s house is thrashed during a break-in, and no one can make any sense of the disturbing slimy thing left on her bed, while she was sleeping.
…Until it appears to connect to a death in town.
Numi has no clue she’s part of a larger scheme. Apophis, the living prison for all misbehaving preternatural creatures, wants more of a dinner plan. Say, the entire world instead of only bad little monsters. Numi just might be his meal ticket.
