Ally Carter’s megabestselling Gallagher Girls series meets Veronica Mars with a paranormal twist when Jillian Cade’s (fake!) private eye service unearths far more than she bargained for.
Jillian Cade doesn’t believe in the paranormal, unlike her famous father, a professor and expert on the occult. Ever since he abandoned her to travel the world for “research,” she’s milked his reputation—and all the suckers who believe in the stuff—by taking over his private investigation firm. After all, a high school junior has to take care of herself, especially when she’s on her own.
Ironically, it’s when she takes on a case that might involve a totally non-paranormal missing person that things get strange. Particularly when Sky Ramsey—a new boy at school who insists on becoming her partner—won’t shut up about succubi, of all things.
As they investigate, Jillian is surprised by her feelings for Sky, which threaten to derail the investigation. But that surprise is no match for the shock of learning that there may be something to Sky’s succubi obsession after all.
What do you get when a cynical high school junior meets a super-cute new student who believes in everything she doesn't? An almost romance, it turns out, as Jillian Cade whose business card says paranormal investigator, but who always adds the "fake" under her breath meets Sky Ramsey, a fan of Jillian's absentee father, a paranormal expert. When ever-skeptical Jillian looks into a missing-person case that she thinks is about infidelity and Sky believes is a classic case of a succubus creating a new love slave, the trail leads her into a hidden world of prophecy, superpowers, succubi, ancient traditions, and information about her family that upends everything she knows about the world and herself. Debut author Klein's writing and characters have attitude to spare, but there's a lot going on serious danger, new familial and romantic relationships, and life-changing revelations not all of which is given time to resonate. Klein seems to be paving the way for a sequel, but it comes at the cost of rushing through this story's events and emotions. Ages 14 up.
