About the Book
Feathered Cop Music Festival is usually Lenora “Lenny” Ragno’s favorite weekend, but not anymore. Avoiding a public performance is about as impossible as hiding from Jeb, her longtime crush, who she’s been dodging since she blew their duet last year. She thinks facing him will be the scariest part of the festival, but when one of their friends talks everyone into trying astral projection, Lenny catches the eye of a demonic entity that marks her as its own.
Whenever it wants, the demon can pluck Lenny from her reality and transport her to a hellish between-world, haunted by its countless, gruesome victims. If she doesn’t want to become one of them, she must discover the nature of the demon’s hold on her and remove it. But how can she defeat a literal demon when she can’t even get over her personal ones?
