When George Soto turns twenty-six, his life is less than perfect. Stuck in a dead-end job, watching his friends pass him by, it's quickly starting to feel like he's going nowhere. When he finds a strange ritual meant to contract a demon, he doesn't imagine it could possibly work.
Until there's a demon standing in his living room.
George doesn't know what a contract with a demon entails, but it seems like a great opportunity to get revenge on his awful boss. Gradually, he and the demon—an abrasive entity who calls himself Jack—form an alliance.
But as things heat up between them, George almost doesn't notice the increasing darkness in his life. The nights are longer, the shadows grow heavier, and the world around him seems to be distorting.
