~ When a fiery Nephilim goes rogue, there's only one thing to do: Take cover ~
Israfel, the only member of the fallen race in existence, is on a mission: kill Jared Crow, head of a secret organization known as The Order, and the man who murdered her friends. She's highly trained in the martial arts, skilled in weaponry and won't allow anything to stand in her way, not even her mortal lover, Edmond. Unable to dissuade Israfel from hunting down Crow, Edmond joins her. He’s only along for the ride, but it’s one he’ll wish he’d never taken.
Raziel, the last Watcher on earth, has taken refuge in the desert, far from the mortals he is duty-bound to protect. Though tired of the task after thousands of years of lonely servitude, when he detects a threat to the Symphony--the universal flow of all living things--he has no choice but to track the dissonance. Knowing sooner or later Israfel must die, he joins in the chase.
Jared Crow has an agenda none of them could have foreseen—and he’s got some powerful help in the form of the Dark One. Nephilim, Mortal and Watcher--it will take all three to reverse what Crow has set in motion.
~ There's no escaping black karma, even for immortals ~
Meet Jasmine Fairchild, outrageously gorgeous and extremely persuasive -- unnaturally so. Jasmine is a Cambion, part mortal, part succubus.
Enter Ahriman, an ancient and evil incubus. For centuries, he has exploited the secrets of reincarnation to reach his goal of immortality and the eradication of humanity. All he needs now is a portal, an opportunity...and Jasmine.
She stands alone as the only force powerful enough to immortalize or destroy him, and her dual nature makes Ahriman's task a little tougher than he thought...
~ When someone dies in outrage, a curse is born ~
In 1576 Venice, during the second and worst outbreak of the plague, a dying child is shown no mercy. Her death spawns a curse, one which has endured for more than four centuries.
In 1927, the curse manifested in acts of madness and murder in a newly constructed asylum, events which, almost a century later, have not quite been laid to rest.
Now, in a rendezvous with fate, architect Anna LaServa has arrived in Venice, opening the door to the next fulfillment of the curse. She will uncover the reason behind her confrontation with the barbaric executioner whose name is... Revenge.
