sister, Maisie, has been kidnapped by their vampire grandmother, Lavinia. As part of the
plan to rescue Maisie, Sabina, her demon servant Giguhl and Adam Lazarus the mage kidnap
Tanith, the vampire Dominae. Tthough she intended to snatch Persephone to extract
information, the Dominae makes a deal with the Queen of the Fairies.
After the mages hear that Lavinia is in New Orleans, Sabina, Adam and Gighul (AKA Team

voodoo priestess Zenobia and her friend Brooks, a changeling drag queen, so they have
extra help on their mission.
The Fae Queen is taking advantage of the Mage's circumstances by establishing dominance
over them, while this is happening. She expects all Mages to fall in line like little
minions. With everyone seeming to be against them, it's up to the three of them to save
Maisie before it is too late. And also to kick Lavinias ass!

it's always believable.
