Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge is by Paul Krueger. An interesting take on urban fantasy. Bailey Chen has completed college and is living with her parents while she looks for a job. An old friend she hooked up with in high school offers her a job as a bar back in his uncle's bar. Once there she discovers that Zane and his friends are really demon hunters. They seek out and kill tremens, creatures who like to prey on drunk humans. Bailey also learns that certain drinks give you super powers which bartenders use to fight the tremens. But, of course, everything is not that simple; Zane's uncle may be trying to create a magical Long Island Iced Tea which will make him immortal so he can take over the world; there's always someone who wants to take over the world. A quick and fun read and the drink recipes are fun to try - if you're over 21 of course.
