From official release/information:
From back of book: When Evie Walker goes home to spend time with her dying father, she discovers that his creaky old house in Hope's Fort, Colorado, is not the only legacy she stands to inherit. Hidden behind the old basement door is a secret and magical storeroom, a place where wondrous treasures from myth and legend are kept safe until they are needed again.
And there are certainly those who will give anything to get in.
Evie must find a way to guard the storeroom against ancient and malicious forces, protecting the past and the future even as the present unravels around them. Old heroes and notorious villains alike rise to fight on her side or to undermine her most desperate gambits.
At stake is the fate of the world, and the prevention of nothing less than the apocalypse.
