Summary

Unlucky thieves invade a house where Home Alone seems like a playground romp. An antique bookseller and a mob enforcer join forces to retrieve the Atlas of Hell. Postapocalyptic survivors cannot decide which is worse: demon women haunting the skies or maddened extremists patrolling the earth.In this chilling twenty-first-century companion to the cult classic Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror, Ellen Datlow again proves herself the most masterful editor of the genre. She has mined the breadth and depth of ten years of terror, collecting superlative works of established masters and scene-stealing newcomers alike.

    Lucia Librovich is waking up at an operating table. She doesn’t know why she is back to life; she can’t remember her past, most definitely has no future and is now almost a zombie. That’s not really the worst to happen in the post-apocalyptic world saturated with old and new horrors, where everything has become a commodity even the soul. But her blissful state won’t last long, because the spirit of her grandmother, Lucia Senior, will pave the way to the important task of discovery as to who is behind the trade of souls.
    Alternately, on the road between the living and the dead, of help and hindrance will be the spirit of a young girl, a smug vampire, a ghost of a fallen spirit deacon and a spirit of a dog trapped in a cat’s body. She will be receiving insider information from Inspector, an almost enlightened government official, but these won’t help her fight the powers and interests on “this” or “that” side. As always, the epilogue will be the result of coincidence, if coincidence even exists regardless of what dimension.

    This is Benton’s story as he makes his way between the mortal world and a world where magic reigns. Do you dare follow? Do you dare see what lurks just beyond the edge of perception?

    Some secrets were never meant to be exposed to the light of the world.  
     
    When the Raven Faery Queen’s brother is cursed and in danger of losing his wings and mind, she calls in specialized mercenaries for the Seelie Faery Court—Benton and Rylan (AKA Soap). They immediately discover this might not be a cut and dry mission.  
     
    Benton is reminded of a promise he vowed to keep and uncovers an important tie to his family’s past. But the secrets go beyond his family and lead to the real reason Elementals, like Benton, are being hunted and are almost extinct. Soap also discovers a link to his past that threatens his magic and reveals deadly truths about the Land of Faerie and the two divided courts.  
     
    In the midst of it all, Benton and Rylan are tasked with finding Zena, a human girl with the gift of The Sight, before she is captured by an obsessed bounty hunter who only hunts humans with specific and unusual abilities for nefarious reasons.  
     
    Some say you should never trust a faery…

    Becca's missing brother Archie has been found. And it seems her father, presumed lost at sea in the Straits of Gibraltar, may not be quite as dead as all that after all. 
    So one might be tempted think everything would be coming up Carlisle. Instead, the Baron Bloody Lindsey is at it again, this time with the assistance of his much craftier sister. 
    Now it's up to Becca, the dashing and brilliant lawyer Jonathan Avery, and the intrepid members of the Ladies' Adventurers Club to save Archie from the hangman's noose on charges of mutiny and treason.
