I'm Everly, and I see dead people.
The dead are supposed to be gone. Silent. Resting in peace. But they aren't. They haunt me. They tear at me. They want something from me. I feel like I'm losing my mind!
Then there’s Shadow. He’s been with me for as long as I can remember. A formidable, powerful being that incites fear all on his own. But he’s my protector, slaying the demons that get too close and saving me from whatever seeks to harm me, even myself. He wants something from me too.
Those in the know say I’m special. All I want is to be normal!
My fear and destiny collide to bring me to the doorstep of a place I never dreamed possible. I won’t be alone. He’ll be there. Shadow. And so will they. The Dead. Because I'm never alone.
I am not a good man.
That’s a lie. I’m not a man anymore. Signing away my eternity to the Devil kind of erased what makes me human. Now, I collect and corrupt souls for the Devil. It’s not a bad gig if you like sin, sex, and darkness.
I’m one soul away from becoming a crowned prince of hell. I'm assigned to corrupt and collect the soul of Nephilim-born Maggie Westbrook—a shy, beautiful seventeen-year-old who has no idea what she is. Should be easy as sin, right?
She turns my world upside down, leaving me raw, exposed, and feeling—feelings things I didn’t even know I was capable of feeling. How can I get the only thing I’ve ever wanted without hurting her?
I am not a good man. It’s important that I repeat that. I am the demon Abraxas Shepherd, and this is my testimony of the damned.
