Book two of the Of Ash and Spirit trilogy by Denise Grover Swank writing as D.G. Swank.
Just when Piper begins to accept her new role as demon slayer, a fresh threat rises. People are disappearing, and Piper is sure a sinister, otherworldly force is at play.

Especially when the new creatures aren’t demons, or ghosts and she has no idea how to deal with them.

There is one man who has the knowledge she needs to survive but she can’t even count on him. Why? The bastard left town.
One thing is certain: a big bad demon’s come to town and Piper has to stop him—but she needs help to do it.
If only she could figure out whom to trust…
