Being the youngest daughter of the Devil has never been easy. Daphne's father has little time for her, her mother, little interest, and her status in the upper echelon separates her from the
working-class demons that populate Lucifer's metropolis. Confined to the family high-rise, she amuses herself by collecting costume jewelery and plastic memorabilia, but when her brother and only confidante goes missing, life in the restrictive city of Pandemonium becomes intolerable. With plans to locate her brother and thus win their mother's elusive affection, Daphne sets out for Earth—and finds it larger and more chaotic than she imagined, a dazzling expanse of noise, dirt, and random violence.
Despite her initial bewilderment, she navigates the mortal world with growing fascination, gaining a grudging ally when she purchases a dying boy from her father's minions. Unfortunately, Lucifer's agents are not the only creatures on the prowl, and Daphne soon finds herself in a reluctant standoff with a few of Heaven's more dogmatic officials. Now, equipped with a straight razor and unshakable optimism in the world's virtue, she must evade a demon-eating monster, save her brother from an angelic zealot, and rally the goodness in
people who have been told all their lives that they are irredeemable.
