We are not alone. There are forces beyond the vastness of space, in the realm between life and death. They are the archons, but they have been known by other names: angels, demons, ghosts, gods. Among them, Danna Gallagher is thrust into a destiny she does not understand. Led by a torn mentor, hunted by a spurned patron, and coveted by a malevolent spirit, she will face her own mysterious origin. Possessing the wrath of a goddess and the ignorance of a mortal, Taylor Calvin wrought a life of violence and hatred. Now she must face her inner demons to prevent history from repeating itself. Amber Walker hides the scars of a tortured past beneath a strength earned by trial. Blessed with the seeker's gift and the severed soul of her old rival, the victim has become the hunter. More than any other, Eric Bryce can unravel the archons' deepest mysteries - and the perils within them. He alone can guide his friends through a darkness only he is wise enough to fear.
