The Purple Door District by Erin Casey

Nomination badges earned:


Bianca was supposed to attend art school in Chicago, not run for her life from Hunters. The only chance she has to survive is to find The Purple Door District, a safe haven for parahumans like herself. But the Hunters are relentless, as is the dark force driving them.

Vampire, werewolf, avian, magus–

It’s up to the parahumans of the Purple Door District of Chicago to put their differences aside to save Bianca and stop a dark threat from destroying their peaceful community.
