A Southern Gothic Urban Fantasy: For thousands of years, Lazariel-one of the Living Ones-has tried to protect his extended family from the wrath of the fallen angels known as the Watchers. Now, keeping the promise he has made to an old friend-to make sure his grandson remains safe-is proving to be more difficult than Lazariel expected.

Zephaniah Adams remembers most of his grandfather's stories about ghosts, fairies and angels, but he never considered them to be more than invented tales. Yet while clearing out the family home in rural Tennessee, he inadvertently uncovers a long-held family secret. After returning home to New York City, Zeph starts to believe that he is being followed by mysterious dark-suited men. And now his estranged father-a biochemist who apparently has been studying the genetic code of the Watchers and their hybrid offspring, the Nephilim- seems to have gone missing. With the help of his new archeologist friend Jillian, Zeph must find a way to stop the Watchers from carrying out their ancient divine directive: to wipe out all traces of the Nephilim and their descendants.
