A sharp and funny urban fantasy for "new adults" that mixes boozy magical concoctions, high-octane demon-fighting, and a twist of wit and strains it all through the terrifying experience that is post-college life. College grad Bailey Chen has a few demons: no job, no parental support, and a rocky relationship with Zane, the only friend who's around when she moves back home. But when Zane introduces Bailey to his cadre of monster-fighting bartenders, her demons get a lot more literal. Like, soul-sucking hell-beast literal. Soon, it's up to Bailey and the ragtag band of magical mixologists to take on whatever--or whoever--is behind the mysterious rash of gruesome deaths in Chicago, and complete the lost recipes of an ancient tome of cocktail lore. Fantasy action in a "grown up" setting--like a boozier Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or Harry Potter for adults--perfect for readers who grew up with fantasy and are now over 21 "New adult" setting and post-grad characters are fresh and relevant for young-but-not-too-young readers in the 18-25 age group Vintage cocktail-book packaging makes the novel look as intricate and decorative--a speakeasy spellbook Includes 15 cocktail recipes from ancient book of cocktail lore to brew up at home--magic powers not included Approximate word count: 75,000
