The Midwestern resort town of Pemkowet boasts a diverse population: eccentric locals, wealthy summer people, and tourists by the busload; not to mention fairies, sprites, vampires, naiads, ogres and a whole host of eldritch folk, presided over by Hel, a reclusive Norse goddess.
To Daisy Johanssen, fathered by an incubus and raised by a single mother, it’s home. And as Hel’s enforcer and the designated liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, it’s up to her to ensure relations between the mundane and eldritch communities run smoothly. But when a young man from a nearby college drowns—and signs point to eldritch involvement—the town’s booming paranormal tourism trade is at stake. Teamed up with her childhood crush, Officer Cody Fairfax, a sexy werewolf on the down-low, Daisy must solve the crime—and keep a tight rein on the darker side of her nature. For if she’s ever tempted to invoke her demonic birthright, it could accidentally unleash nothing less than Armageddon.

"A sötét boszorkányok nagy tettekre képesek." Négy évvel korábban Sophie Mercer rádöbbent, hogy boszorkány, amiből természetesen jó pár kalamajka származott. Egy napon aztán, amikor Sophie egyik bűbája meglehetősen rosszul sült el a szalagavató bálon, apja úgy döntött, felügyeletre szorul. A Hex Hallba, egy világtól elzárt nevelőotthonba küldte őt, ami a problémás viselkedésű prodigiumok (vagyis boszorkányok, tündérek és alakváltók) gyűjtőhelye. A hasonszőrű csodabogár tinikkel töltött első nap végére Sophie szép kis listával dicsekedhetett: - három erős, szupermodell-kinézetű ellenséget szerzett, - egy szívdöglesztő boszorkánymester iránt érzett bimbózó szerelmet, - egy ijesztő kísértet kezdte követni, - és kapott egy szobatársat, akiről kiderült, hogy a suli leggyűlöltebb diákja és ráadásul vámpír. A legrosszabb azonban akkor következett be, amikor Sophie rádöbbent, hogy a diáktámadások első számú gyanúsítottja az ő szobatársa és egyetlen barátja. A vérfagyasztó rejtélyek egyre sokasodtak, és Sophie kénytelen volt felkészülnie a legnagyobb fenyegetésre, hogy egy ősi, titkos társaság mindent megtesz azért, hogy elpusztítsa a prodigiumokat - _kiváltképp_ őt. _"A Hex Hallt olvasni olyan, mint kinyitni egy doboz bonbont - nincs az az önuralom, ami megállítana. Minden oldalára jutott minimum egy kacagtató mondat! A gyilkossági ügy izgalmai miatt pedig szinte maguktól peregtek a lapok - vagy talán a Hex Hall egyik láthatatlan prodigiuma volt a felelős ezért! Sophie Mercer engem is elvarázsolt!"_ - Becca Fitzpatrick, a _Csitt, csitt_ sikerkönyv írója -
