After making the deal of his life, a clairvoyant college student has two days to spy on the leader of a vampire coven, and deliver his findings to The Guild. 

Torren Jacobs never considered himself born for greatness. Raised in the notorious city of Flint, he had to use his intelligence and drive to scrape his way out a complicated family dynamic and into college. While interning at a prestigious law firm, he meets the beautiful Mazia Khoury, who invites him to stay at her home.

But things are not quite what they seem. When Torren shows up at the house, he finds a murder scene. Everything in his life is turned upside-down when one of his new roommates is found dead and Mazia is nowhere to be found. 

Torren is thrust into a world of supernatural powers and blood-thirsty creatures when his new magical mentor sets him on a task that will change his life. With only two days and zero training, can Torren uncover what the vampires are up to?
