And Then There Were Crows – The Shades of Hell Series
New York City has always been a big fat sack of stress for Amanda Grey. Luckily, the one-bedroom apartment in Queens she shares with her parents has always served as a refuge from a world that's too loud and too bright for Grey. Of course, that's all about to change. When she inadvertently rents a room to a demon, Grey goes from a woman concentrated on her own personal demons to the woman responsible for recapturing the six Shades from Hell she's unleashed upon the city.
She manages to survive by accepting the help of Barnem, an antisocial seraphim who just happens to reside in an upstairs apartment and the demon she now shares her apartment with. Together the unlikely trio will have to face off with the devils of New York politics, break the curse of infomercial jingles, and figure out exactly how Grey has become the leader of a cult, all as Grey begins to realize that maybe the end of the world is exactly what her life needed. Now she just needs to figure out how to survive it.
