BLURB from Goodreads
After a year of coasting rather than living, destroyed by her boyfriend Eliot's death, Shane Valentine matriculates into his college. She begins to build a new life as a college freshman, only to have it stolen from her one night, when she is trying to drown her sorrows at the bottom of a daiquiri.

She wakes the next day in a strange apartment with three scars she can't remember and a bloody shirt. On her walk of shame in stolen clothes, she realizes that no one aside for her roommate Roselyn, a Wiccan with epilepsy, remembers her. Unfortunately three occultists are after her to fix the mistake they made and they remember her too well.

Gideon, a daemonic being with an penchant for card, finds her and assures her he is going to help her out of his own sense of self-preservation. After a quick trip to the nameless campus drug dealer, whose abilities far exceed the selling of narcotics, Shane begins on an adventure to figure out what was done with her and why, to regain a life she had been wasting in mourning. Then, she begins to see Eliot's ghosts and realizes even chaos cannot be so cut and dry.

BLURB from Goodreads
Roselyn Jacobs' life may not be strictly uncomplicated. She lives with Shane, a girl caught between being a teenager and a goddess. She sleeps with Dryden, who pretends to be a vampire when he is not working the graveyard shift at a dead-end job. Moreover, she is keenly aware that the world is dotted with pockets of beings that better belong in horror movies and fairy tales than taking her order at the local diner. She manages well until her boyfriend is turned into an actual vampire and her roommate is kidnapped as a means of leverage. To save them she must confront a basement blood-selling ring, a surly demigod, obtuse prophesies, a fortune-telling Wiccan, and a vampire hunter who wants more than she can give. 
Can she manage to keep up her life intact and still stop more people from dying to swell a gang of the undead? Can she trust the self-interest of the monsters on her side, the few remaining daemonic beings left in Red Hook? Should she continue to give her heart to a man whose own heart has stopped beating?
