"There's no such thing as magic," Nick said.
"Do I not seem magical to you?" the archon said. Then it broke into gales of laughter again, as if it had said something outrageously funny.

Carmen shares a telepathic bond with her cat Grim. When the State bans pets, she has to find somewhere to hide him.

Finding a new home for Grim results in her falling in with the most wanted boy in the city. Worse, she's agreed to help him on his stupid quest to release a monster that has been imprisoned under the city for a thousand years. This wouldn't be a problem if anyone knew what the monster was, or how to wake it, or where in the underworld it's imprisoned - or if it even exists. They can only trust the word of the boy's criminal employer.

Then Carmen's parents are arrested and sentenced to death, and she must place her trust in this man. In doing so however, she risks killing not only her parents, but everyone on earth.
10 to adult. Also suitable for confident younger readers.

Don't mind a lab pup. Although kittens are more of a deterrent.
