Encountering three strange allies, Violet soon learns that a war is raging between heaven and hell and that she is directly in the middle of it. The master of hell is planning a hostile takeover of Earth. It is apparently her destiny to stop him from breaking open the gates to the underworld and releasing a flood of ravenous demons.
Armed with only her wit and sarcasm, it will take strength and courage that she never knew she possessed to face the ordeals ahead. What Violet doesn't know yet is that she won’t be alone. The guardian angel she’d always thought was just her imagination is very real. He will be watching over her and guarding her back as she faces the minions of hell.

The Gothic, concerned with the perverse and the forbidden, with adult sexuality and religious or metaphysical doubts and heresies, seems to represent everything that children’s literature, as a genre, was designed to keep out. Indeed, this does seem to be very much the way that children’s literature was marketed in the late eighteenth century, at exactly the same time that the Gothic was really taking off, written by the same women novelists who were responsible for the promotion of a safe and segregated children’s literature.
This collection examines the early intersection of the Gothic and children’s literature and the contemporary manifestations of the gothic impulse, revealing that Gothic elements can, in fact, be traced in children’s literature for as long as children have been reading.
