Eighteen-year-old Roxie Sebastian lives a charmed life, and she knows it. But she couldn’t feel it—until she learns that she’s half angel, a being from another dimension, and she was separated from the light that is her soul during her traumatic birth. Someone has been screwing with that light, using it to commit crimes, and their actions are about to cause irreparable damage to two worlds: the one she lives in, and the one she can’t remember. Aided by her best friend Jordan, her boyfriend Tucker, and fellow half-angel Lincoln, Roxie tracks down the criminal and uncovers many more secrets not only of her past, but of the history of their race on Earth. And then she faces a horrible dilemma—the only way she can stop them from ripping apart both worlds is to fuse with her light…which could be tainted by the evil with which it was used.
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…
