Bailey Chen is fresh out of college with all the usual new-adult demons: no cash, no job offers, and an awkward relationship with Zane, the old friend she kinda-sorta hooked up with during high school. But when Zane introduces Bailey to his monster-fighting bartender friends, her demons become a lot more literal. It turns out evil creatures stalk the city streets after hours, and they can only be hunted with the help of magically mixed cocktails: vodka grants super strength, whiskey offers the power of telekinesis, and tequila lets its drinker fire blasts of elemental energy. But will all of these powers be enough for Bailey to halt a mysterious rash of gruesome deaths? And what will she do when the safety of a “real world” job beckons? This sharp and funny urban fantasy is perfect for fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and grown-up readers of Harry Potter. Includes fifteen recipes from a book of ancient cocktail lore.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“You will be intrigued from the very first words. We encounter immortality, betrayal, alcohol, magic, inferences to sex, gory violence, and strong language. Recommended for anyone interested in magic and mixology with a hint of romance thrown in. Cocktail lore and recipes are also part of the mix.” RT Book Reviews
“This action-packed first novel serves smooth sips of new-adult angst with a twist of humor.” Library Journal
