Description

"A sexy, gritty Mortal Instruments meets Fourth Wing. Think a military Hogwartz for angels and demons"

"Combines the intricate world building of Crescent City with the colorful cast and humor of Zodiac Academy"

Orphan. Slave. Drug dealer.

In an Afterworld that literally has Hell and Heaven on Earth, Wen White is the lowest a being can be. Her life is one of drudgery, degradation—and mortal danger. And that's before she started dealing Angelescence. Unlike anything in existence, it's a drug only she can produce, and everyone would kill for.

With decommission and execution closing in, she's desperate to buy out her and her best friend's Indentures. But upping her operations only gets her arrested, and her terrifying captor drags her to the Celestial Court—on a leash—to stand trial. Her sentence?

Conscription to Celestial Academy.

As the most powerful nephilim in history, Godric is Heaven's most ruthless soldier and assassin. Now he's not only her tormentor—he's her mentor. He's been assigned with discovering the root of her unprecedented ability to capture Angel Essence—and of weaponizing it.

They both hate their forced proximity—and each other. That doesn't stop them from seething with cravings that neither ever thought to experience, and can't possibly afford. Anything between them isn't only forbidden, it's disastrous. Potentially for all of existence.

But being embroiled in their private war becomes the least of their worries when he unearths even more terrible mysteries within her. Meanwhile, lethal trials loom at mid-term, and a devastating internal war as well as another Apocalypse are brewing...

...and Wen is at the center of it all.
