It's like Law & Order, but with witchcraft.
When a thief breaks into your house, you call the cops.
When a corrupt witch is terrorizing your neighborhood, you call Rachel Collins.
On paper, she works as an agent for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, which serves as a cover for her secret job as a deputy for the High Council of Witches. It’s her responsibility to enforce the Council’s laws and protect humanity from the things they don’t know exist. It’s dangerous, and not just because a Walking Dead reject might eat her face. If she uses too much power, she could become a monster herself.
It's all magical forensics and arresting perps for dealing with demons until a serial killer strikes close to home. Defying the Council’s order to stay off the case, Rachel hides her witchy identity from the demon-hunter Sean—which definitely has nothing to do with how hot he is—and makes a deal with him to stop the killer. Their plan risks corrupting Rachel’s soul, a grievous offense in the eyes of the Council. She’ll have to save the city without becoming hellbound—or suffer the same brand of justice she’s used to serving.
