It's not the end of the world--until it is. Sophie Lawson may be a mere human with no special abilities except a strong immunity to magic. But the havoc she's wreaked on the supernaturals who come up against the Underworld Detection Agency have earned her plenty of enemies. Still, a girl can't freak out every time a horribly barbecued corpse is found with her business card in its hand. Or see a sudden glut of earthquakes, wildfires and three-headed dogs as just another day in California. But Alex Grace, her favorite fallen angel, is concerned--or saying he is to see more of her. Getting Sophie to see all the signs of the Apocalypse is an interesting way to heat things up. Or maybe what's making everyone hot under the collar is the fact that all Hell is about to break loose. . .
Working for the UDA, Sophie has made plenty of enemies but a girl can’t freak out everything… so that the fact that all hell is breaking loose is not the end of the world - right?

But of course, Sophie is bombarded with people trying to kill her, kidnap her, do unspeakable things to her, oh and let’s not forget the devil… really the girls doesn’t have time for romance. The reader can’t help but get caught up in all the drama and excitement of Sophie’s life…I mean look who are friends are and wow, her father is definitely in drama inducing territory.
