Lexi Matthews doesn’t think she is much different from the other students in her Gettysburg, Pennsylvania high school. Even the repressed ability to share mental thoughts with her disabled identical twin sister doesn’t trigger those feelings. She couldn’t have been more wrong. When her mother is kidnapped by a powerful undead demon, she and her sister learn of the frightening world that they once believed only existed in mythological stories. As Black Legacy—a society of demon hunters made up of shapeshifters, werewolves, sorcerers, faeries, half-breed vampires, and Black Knights—is revealed, she discovers her heritage where she, like her parents, is a Black Knight, a human granted superior strength by archangels. Reluctant and scared, the sisters start a new school. Her sister buries her uneasiness in books but Lexi’s stubbornness and impulsiveness make it nearly impossible for her to adapt. Struggling between a lifetime of lies from her parents, fitting in with her supernatural peers, and battling evil first hand, she must balance her heart’s desires for normalcy, childhood friendships, and, more importantly, her on-and-off again boyfriend, Chris Lehman, who is simply an ordinary human. But what if normal and ordinary is all that she can handle? Will she be forced to move forward and join Black Legacy, which is rightfully her legacy, or will she refuse?
