One month after Kennedy's mother dies of a supposed heart attack, Kennedy is herself attacked by a vengeance ghost and nearly killed.
"Nearly killed" because just as her breath is being stolen away, two boys show up and get rid of the ghost. They then whisk Kennedy away just as a demon destroys her home and everything she's ever known.
On the run from ghosts, a demon, and the police who've put out an Amber Alert on her, Kennedy must face a few facts about her own heritage and the world around her.
With the help of the twin brothers who rescued her, a young genius, and a snarky teen girl, Kennedy is on a quest to find a way to destroy the demon who killed her mom and with all the guardians and loved ones of her companions.
But the demon knows who they are now and they are running out of time to get him before he gets them.
Final thoughts: Looking at other reviews, most comments are that this is pretty much a Supernatural fanfic written by a respected YA author. I don't know about all of that, but I do know that this book is full of a few hits and a whole lotta misses. There are too many moments where things just happen suddenly and I found that I had to go back an reread paragraphs to see if I missed something. Sometimes I had missed something, and I'll admit that. Other times, it was the author who missed something and just made a sudden left turn with no warning. I did like a few things and was pleasantly surprised at times, but it just wasn't consistent.
