Description: The small coastal town of Serenity Bay is no longer a serene getaway as it once was; it's now Hell on earth, and its people are spontaneously combusting. Ex-SFPD Inspector Phyllis Blessing moves back to Serenity Bay after her husband and son die in a freak accident. She hopes to find the innocence of childhood and the comfort of family. But when both her aunt and uncle are mysteriously killed, she becomes entangled in a bizarre investigation involving balls of light that speed across the night sky. Along the way, she picks up a group of misfit allies: Madam Volga, the Gypsy fortuneteller, and Lucy McDanell, a girl who believes a vampire visits her in dreams. Phyllis also discovers a Faerie Realm, or Otherworld, where she meets her most trusted ally, an elf named Gideon. Banding together is the only hope of this group of misfits to survive THE BURNING!
