When demons once again start to show up at every turn, seemingly bringing about her brother’s deepening depression, Julia demands her sword from Nicholas. Ever the stern Guardian Angel, he forbids her from using a weapon unless she agrees to his timeline and his rules. Sick of fighting with him, Julia takes protecting her brother into her own hand
But when demons are suddenly able to siphon souls from the living, ash-colored lines begin to appear on humans, lines of demonic poison that travel through their veins toward their hearts and alter their emotions. Julia and her family are in more danger than she ever imagined possible. More danger than she can handle on her own.
Julia’s relieved when Cole returns, but he’s distant and unlike himself. She doesn’t know who to turn to for help, so in order to stop evil from spreading and overtaking those she loves, she’ll have to seek out the one person she mistrusts most – her father. Especially after a line appears on her own arm.
Being both angel and human is taking its toll, and the poison in Julia’s veins is only confusing her further. When Nicholas finally offers to help, can she trust the growing feelings she has for him? Or are they a byproduct of the poison? Will she succumb to the poison’s will before she is able to save everyone she cares about?
If only humans knew about the invisible dangers lurking around them, Julia might have a chance to save them from uncertain death… or worse, an eternity in hell.
