Sophie Saterlee has made it her mission to get her life together. Leaving behind an abusive relationship, she's bartending her way through a psychology degree. Ultimate goal? A new, stronger sense of identity. But when a terrifying recurring nightmare begins to poison her waking hours and threaten all her progress, once again she’s close to losing everything.
An invitation to a tea leaf reading party sounds like exactly the kind of distraction she needs, but an innocent girls' night out turns into a journey through a complex and treacherous world of magic. To survive it, Sophie must forge ahead in spite of her fears, making uncomfortable alliances with strangers from this dark new reality—the arrogant Donovan, the mysterious Caine. One of them is tied to her past, and the other fills her present. Either man might hold the key to her uncertain future, but there's more going on in her little corner of the world than Sophie realizes, and the truth will change everything.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
