Publisher's Summary

Detective Sally Brooks investigates an unusual robbery, and discovers that magic is real - and hungry!
NYPD Detective Sal Brooks is no rookie - but even the most hardened cop would think twice when they see their brother open a book and become...well...something entirely not their brother. When her attempts to solve the case cross paths with a mysterious team led by a priest, she starts to realize that the world is far more than what is seems, and, just maybe, magic is real - and hungry.
This episode is the first in a 16-part serial, Bookburners, presented by Serial Box. From a team of writers, this collaborative effort unfolds an epic urban fantasy narrative across an entire season in weekly installments.
Follow along as Sal learns the life-changing lesson: Some books have teeth.
