Everyone else is talking about Eastlake High’s gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck, but Kaylee Cavanaugh has bigger things on her mind. Kaylee’s a banshee—her scream is a portent of death.
But the next scream might hit too close to home. Kaylee’s borrowed lifeline has almost run out.
Yeah—it’s a shock to her, too. So to distract herself from her own problems, Kaylee is determined to defend her school against the latest supernatural threat. That hot new teacher is really an incubus, who feeds from the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend’s delinquent ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren’t quite human either.
But Kaylee’s running out of time, and those who love her will do anything to save her life.

Is this the last book of the series? I hope not because IT IS SO GOOD.
Seriously, why aren’t more of you reading these books?
Okay, I know that if I’m all like, “Well, it’s about reapers and the Netherworld and demons and bean sidhes (banshees),” you’re just gonna give me THAT LOOK. You know the look.
But whatever! Trust! Have I steered you wrong before? I hope not.
Look, here’s why it’s good, and it’s not even the paranormal bits: I totally changed my loyalties over the course of the books. Usually, the first boy to even give the main character a LOOK in a book has my allegiance. Yeah, I’m easy. But in these books I was just…won over. Allegiance changed. Final answer.
That's all I'm saying because I don't want to spoil anyone by even discussing the basic plot. Fans of the series will be happy with this installment, and soon-to-be fans…get going on book 1! Make it happen, people.
PS: TOD. OMG.
