When Violet Eden turns seventeen, her entire world turns upside down. Not only does she learn that the boy she’s been pretty much in unrequited love with for the last two years has been deceiving her, but she learns she’s not exactly human but something more. Violet is a Grigori, a child who’s been blessed with the essence of an angel upon her birth, which sort of gifts her with a third angel parent, and a child destined to protect the world from exiled angels bent on world domination. The thing is despite her abilities, she has a choice, she can fend for herself in the world a target of the exiles or she can choose to embrace her destiny as a Grigori and review the power to fight them. Violet is more powerful than others of her kind, she has abilities she shouldn't have before she even embraces and exiles begin to find her before she makes her choice., including Phoenix. Phoenix is an exile, but he’s different from the others in ways that no one understands. Phoenix is there for her when Lincoln simply isn’t, can’t be because he’s the one whose betrayed her, but if she embraces her destiny he could become her enemy. Will she embrace the powers she was born to and fight beside Lincoln or will she walk away from the world she’s meant to be a part of?
