Lost Girl tells the story of Bo, a beautiful drifter who harbours a deadly secret; the ability to kill with a kiss. After leaving a victim in plain sight, Bo is exposed to the world of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore living undetected amongst humans. Once she discovers her true being as a succubus, Bo is forced to choose allegiance between the Dark or Light clans of Fae. Instead, Bo goes rogue, refusing to belong to any world other than human.
