The last few years have brought so many changes and trials into Alexandria Marcus' life, yet so much joy and love as well. She's come to understand what it means to lead the Lord's Nephilim, and grown in many ways, becoming stronger, wiser and braver than ever before. And it is these qualities which Alex must now draw from as a new threat erupts and overshadows her temporary reprieve.
Alex knows the fallen still hunt her and want her power. Yet never would she have imagined the lengths they would go to, or the new and despicable game they've instigated, in order to claim her. As Alex, Gaius, and their brethren face the new traps set to ensnare Alex and her newest friend, Than, Alex is startled to find that the biggest threat is actually coming from within. For the deaths are mounting and weighing heavily on her soul as it soaks up all of the emotions and energy she encounters - both good and bad.
To triumph over Abaddon and Danyul, Alex must make difficult decisions and costly personal sacrifices with far-reaching consequences. But as she has learned before - the Light will outshine the darkness every time. It is that unfailing faith that will see Alexandria, Than and a few other dark immortals through. Those who, like Than, just might be ready for a change.
