Jai was my strength, Noel my sanity, and Gideon was my safety. They were my family, or at least, they used to be. But now, we are broken, and I don't know how to put us back together again. Riley Shepard has accepted that he will never be normal. As the first child to be born of an angel and Fallen union, he is destined to be anything but. Yet, he dreams of a reality where he is. He doesn't want to be the unique hybrid known throughout the Heavenly Realm. He definitely doesn't want to be the secret weapon that both the Archangel Council and the Seven Princes want to use to aid in their war. It isn't his war. Besides, he has his own battles to fight, and he's already losing. His family is falling apart, and he's left scrambling to pick up the pieces before it's too late. They may have made it out of Hell alive, but there's more to life than breathing, more to living than simple beats of a heart. And his angels aren't living. Noel is slowly spiraling, swirling towards dangerous waters, and Jai is barely keeping his head above the waves, pulled down by his drowning Other. Gideon is trapped between his call for duty and the call of his heart, and Riley is, once again, stuck in the middle. Divided by the desires of his heart and imprisoned by the limitations of his mind, Riley is left floundering as he struggles to separate truth from lies, allies from enemies, reality from fantasy. How can he know what's true, when he doesn't even know what's real? Life isn't simple, love is complicated, and reality is terrifyingly blurry.
