From back of book: Dragons, giants and goblins are all around us, magically hidden within human society as they and the whole bestiary of fantastic creatures have been for a thousand years. But when conflicts with humanity arise, someone has to keep the peace between the Fantastics and the unsuspecting mortals who long ago drove everything magical into hiding--and then forgot about them.
The City Knights is the thousand-year-old top-secret organization charged with protecting humanity from the Fantastics and vice versa. You'll never know they exist--unless a dead unicorn turns up on your doorstep.
New recruit Billie Stein finds herself up to her neck in black magic when the malignant sorceress known as Eve awakens a primordial creature of darkness from its epoch-long slumber. As it begins to wake, the hallows, the evil sprites that cared for the horror down through the long ages, are released to spread havoc and destruction throughout New York City. Unless Billie and her fellow Knights can deworm the Big Apple, the spreading darkness will destroy the world the Fantastics and humans are still learning to share.
