Sherman had always thought high school was a real drag. He was looking forward to finishing his senior year so that he could coast through college, get a day job, and spend the rest of his life playing video games. He is used to seeing angels, but when a new girl transfers into his AP physics class, he thinks demons might be more his style.
Sherman's on his first secret mission for Satan, and its one hell of a doozy. First he has to find the most powerful alpha wolf in the tri-county area, and then he has to help Charlotte make it look like the vampires put the puppy down.

Less fortunately, The Lord of Evil has a job for Sherman, and let's just say that if our impromptu hero fails, well, he'll have 99 problems but a succubus won't be one.
