Jai was my strength, Noel, my sanity, and Gideon, he was my safety. Together, they are my family. We fight together, live together, and we die together. For me, there is no other option. Riley Shepard used to want nothing more than to be normal. That is, until three beautiful guardian angels appeared in his life and normal lost its appeal. Now, he is left floundering in a world of angels and demons, hunted for what lies within his veins while he struggles with his own identity. Human? Angel? Nephilim? How can he fit in anywhere when he doesn't even know who or what he is? Faced with the stresses of juggling the newfound relationships in his life, discovering the answers to his mysterious heritage, and investigating the ever growing confusion of his sexuality, passing his college courses and dodging his overbearing foster mother are the least of his problems. The Archangel Council has tightened their monitoring, inching ever closer to the truths that he and his angels try to hide, and he can't shake the foreboding suspicion that something evil is coming for him. When disaster strikes, he is forced to make a choice that will change everything. But will his willingness to give it all strip him of everything he's become? Will there be anything left when the dust settles? To him, it makes no difference because for them, anything is worth the risk.
