“Hydras have a distinctive odor. It’s somewhere between the acid tang of burning hair and a boat full of rotting fish. You can smell them from miles away.
Well, you can’t. But I can.
Some beasties smell mildly unpleasant; others could peel paint. Hydras definitely fall into the latter category.”
Gretchen has been hunting beasts for four years, since her mentor Ursula found her in a disused warehouse after she ran away from her abusive home. Grace has just moved to San Francisco, following a scholarship to study at a high valued school. She’s already terrified enough when her first days at school go badly, but then she meets a girl in a nightclub who could be her double, Gretchen. Gretchen was only in the nightclub to take down a beastie, but she goes home with something else, Grace - a girl who could be her twin. Then there’s Greer, who has life all planned out and is perfectly fine thank you very much, she is busy organising her busy social life when two girls who look just like her turn up on her doorstep and claim that the three of them are descendants of Medusa.
