EXCERPTS:  

Prologue 
Our car careened into the frozen lake. As the icy waters rushed to fill what little air was left in the sinking car, my mother’s body pinned me against the seat. I tried to force her limp weight away, but it proved useless. I didn’t have the strength to push her off. Hopeless, I watched the water level rise. Panic along with the frigid waters began to restrict any movement I made in my state of desperation.  As the flesh freezing water crept to my chin, my mother began to float, nearly too weak to move, I pulled her close, cradling her lifeless body, knowing I’d soon reunite with her. My secret was real, not an illusion as Dr. Seth had convinced my mother it was. Angry voices screamed out to me in a state of confusion and hysteria. Mors ifanti felix, juvenis acerba, nimis sera est seni! I didn’t want to believe their words. The desperation of wanting to live suddenly opened my eyes and had me fighting for my life. I had foolishly wasted away a year, fixated on my destiny, pondering on how my life should have ended; wanting it to end in the worst way. Now, it seemed death was nothing more than a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Dying was not an option, nor would I accept their reasons for taking my mother. I would fight––fight for the both of us. 



Chapter 3:  
“Bethy, I can’t answer for Michael, but I can say I have never seen him act the way he does when he’s around you ––not with any other descendant, anyway. He looks at you differently. . . I. . .I don’t know, Beth.  All I can say is that Michael’s physical form makes him extremely vulnerable, making it easier for him to fall victim to human emotions. Why am I even talking about this with you?” he pressed his lips into a hard line. 
“Freddie, why are you getting upset?”   
“Beth, just forget it, it’s never going to work between the both of you no matter how much he has fallen in love with you. It’s crazy! It would be impossible,” he snapped bitterly. 
At that moment, my world suddenly slowed to a complete standstill. The sound of my own heartbeat fluttered, thumped and swooshed loudly beneath my top. Freddie’s mouth slipped the truth, yet he refused to come straight out and tell me. Michael the Archangel, leader of the Legions was in love with me. My heart ached even more and a sharp pain in the pit of my stomach intensified realizing, I was in love with an Archangel––a forbidden love.
