Ben Carter, pet care specialist, is hired to walk a Shiba Inu named Toby. Unbeknownst to Ben, Toby is no ordinary dog but an “inugami” - an immortal demon born in feudal Japan and bred for only one purpose...murder.
A mysterious cult seeks to capture the inugami and harness his power for evil. With the help of an elderly luchador and a cop with a heart of gold, Ben must protect Toby and uncover the secret of the Tengu before the cultists can unleash the beast and the bloodlust claims the inugami once more.
Since we last saw him, Ben has been pulling double duty – dog walker by day, demon slayer by night. Toby assists in the latter, growing more violent with each kill. Dogs can be domesticated, but an inugami’s murderous instincts are not easily suppressed.
Ten-year-old wrestling prodigy Ash Ocampo is possessed by a sentient spider, which plans to overthrow humanity and bring about a new Age of Yōkai. Wanting to help Ash but worried he is losing Toby, Ben seeks the assistance of Lucas Alcindor – a freelance demon trainer with three inugami of his own. Can Ben regain control of Toby before disaster strikes? Can Ash free herself before the demon inside reigns supreme? Or are both merely prey for the monstrous wolves of the Shadow Pack?
Dog walker Ben Carter is shocked to discover that his mom's fiance Alvar is an "encantado" - a shapeshifting dolphin that seduces human women and preys on their flesh. He races to Minnesota to stop their wedding, leaving demon dog Toby back in Chicago.
Ben arrives too late to stop the ceremony, but when masked gunmen invade the reception, taking hostages and demanding Alvar's head, he is isolated alone with his new aquatic stepfather. Can the dog walker make it out alive with no inugami at his side? Can a dolphin that walks like a man truly be trusted? Who are these strange and anonymous terrorists?
Lock the doors. Hide the wine. The wedding siege has begun.
Samuel Dillon and Katie Baker are Agents of Paradox! They travel through time and space, closing wormholes to preserve the timestream.
Sam hopes to save the lives of his wife and son. Katie wants to save herself from heartbreak. But when Chagatai Khan – the cyborg son of Genghis Khan – attempts to conquer all of human history, they must come to terms with what they have lost and choose saving civilization over changing the past. It’s a story about not dwelling on tragedies, big and small, because going back is never as easy as it seems.
