Eighteen-year-old Larin Thompson was a product of abuse and neglect, thinking her life couldn’t get anymore complicated than hiding the scars of her past from the eyes of her friends. But the sudden emergence of strange black wings from her body make her previous difficulties seem ...insignificant.

Meanwhile, Azrael, known as “the Angel of Death” by the humans he has sought to destroy, has found a weapon. One that will shift the balance in a war that has raged in the shadows since the dawn of time. Azrael is awakening of an army of vessels – hybrid soldiers who are neither man nor Angel. By capturing them as they awaken, Azrael hopes to strengthen his dark army, and eventually find and unleash his brother, Lucifer, upon the world.

Larin's unique characteristics separate her from other vessels, and the Divine Council takes notice –archangels whose sole purpose has been to protect man from Azrael's sinister machinations. They come to believe she is the Herald of their lost leaders, the Seraphim - powerful beings who could prevent Lucifer’s dominion upon the world once more.

Amidst the chaos and confusion of her new life, Larin finds comfort in one council member in particular: the Archangel, Michael. Pulled towards each other in a way they cannot understand, Larin finds in Michael both a friend and confidante, and perhaps a missing piece of her heart.

Larin is thrust into an ancient battle between good and evil, one in which she will play a pivotal role in either saving humanity or seeing it destroyed. The choice to rise to her place as Herald, leading the Divine Council to the reawakening of the Seraphim, or accepting an enticing offer from Azrael, is suddenly presented.

Larin learns that “good” and “evil” are not as black and white as she was taught to believe. The war will inevitably reach its apex in a battle that transcends Heaven and Earth, either resulting in the return of glorious Eden, or seeing lost forever under a cloak of irreversible darkness.
