When Helen Cartwright’s home is burned down with her family still inside it, she escapes with nothing but a suitcase and a vow to find out who’s responsible. Launched into an underground London, where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil, Helen learns that she is one of a select few charged with a responsibility she has unknowingly been trained her whole life to accept. In her newfound role, Helen finds herself torn between one of her heroic protectors and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who nearly destroyed her. Now, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.
