'Perhaps he should have paid attention to the faded placards advising against picnicking in the woods and throwing pebbles in the lake, but Josh Bannerman thought he could stop running when he found a job as cook and general minion in the isolated hamlet of Wolf Hollow. Then he realises his employer, Scarlet, is an immortal peacekeeper of the supernatural underworld and his workmate, Kelly, is a witch from the legendary Charmhaven clan.
'Worse, Josh discovers he's reluctantly comfortable in this darkly surreal world where angels are ecological disasters, short skirts and high heels are invaluable when defeating monsters, and carnivorous unicorns refuse to eat him. In fact, he's more than comfortable. He's uncovering hidden talents he's not sure he wanted to know about.
'Suspecting prophecy and the heavy-handed workings of fate, Josh's newfound companions seek to unravel the mystery of who - or what - Josh is, in between the nightly rounds of protecting the good guys, destroying the forces of evil, and staying alive ... and a little bit human.
'Night is enchanting, night is deadly. And as Josh finds out, what night hides best is darkness ... the darkness within.' (Publisher's blurb)
