The second in a spellbinding new urban fantasy series about angels and demons from New York Times bestselling author L.A. Banks.
Just three short months ago, Celeste Jackson was pulled into a supernatural world by her guardian angel, Azrael, only to learn that not only was he super hot, but he was also the Angel of Death. What began as his platonic quest to find her, one of the Remnant, and to save her from the forces of evil hunting for her, quickly evolved into forbidden passion. They joined Azrael’s fellow angels in the Light in a battle against the fallen, and once the dust settled, it appeared as though the Light was victorious.
However that idyllic peace is short-lived when Azrael’s angel brother, Bath Kol, receives a disturbing vision. Those members of the fallen that were conquered have found a key to rebirth within the sacred tombs of Egypt. Now able to raise their full armies of darkness against the small twenty-one angel battalion charged with protecting the Remnant, evil has the advantage. That is unless Celeste, one of only three half-angel/half-human hybrids left on the planet, can sway the balance. If Celeste cannot, countless human lives will be lost, evil will eclipse the earth, the Light will forever be extinguished… and Azrael will be forced to make an awful choice between taking a fall to save the woman he loves or to allow her to perish.
