Maxi’s solitary life changes when not one, but two people discover Maxi’s secret and find it fascinating rather than frightening. Sheridan Daniels can detect the ghosts and insists that Maxi let her join some of her jobs to see them in action. Devin Courtney tangles his personal interest in Maxi with his need for her help. The three embark on a mission to find Devin’s missing sister, Sydney. They uncover not just nefarious intentions at Sydney’s school but a lonely, vengeful ghost who isn’t about to let Maxi leave. Stopping the ghost means blowing up life as Maxi knows it…and possibly leaving her more alone than ever.

Fusing with her soul has allowed Roxie to feel complete for the first time in her life. But that doesn’t mean everything is fine. Her angel-assigned mission prevents her from going to college and forces her to lie to her parents. She sucks at the cool powers that come along with being half angel. And now she finds out that angels aren’t the whole story. There are shadows, too, and a centuries-old battle between angels and shadows has somehow put Roxie right in the middle. Forget fake homework and the easy, memorable summer-before-college she’s not having—the stakes are suddenly life or death, and the main casualty could be the one person she can’t live without.
After saving the world (again), Roxie continues to struggle with the emotional explosion that came with her fusion. Her relationship with her parents is cracking under the strain of too many lies. And now she and her friends have let into our world a being of unimaginable power and unknown intentions. As a series of visions show her truths even the other angels and shadows didn’t know, new threats close in. She must unite allies and enemies in a race to save her father from possession and the world from invasion. She can’t succeed without the help of Gaia, the most powerful angel, who almost killed her 18 years ago. But that help will come at a most terrible price…
