Imagine if Buffy got married and settled in surburbia. Then you would have Carpe Demon, Julie Kenner's suburban fantasy. Kate Hunter was a Hunter, a hitman for the Vatican who spent years tracking down vampires, demons and other suernatural baddies, but then she fell in love with another Hunter, retired, got married and settled down. But her Hunter husband Eric passed away and she eventually married Stuart. Now she has two kids and worries more about carpool than demon hunting.

Unfortunately, a demon shatters Kate's world when it shatters her front window just before she is to host a dinner party. It appear that her old life has caught up with her. Now she must balance a teenage daughter starting high school, getting her two year-old son into daycare and supporting her husband's political aspirations all while try to figure out why the demons have suddenly invaded the town.

A superb suburban fantasy from Julie Kenner.
