About The Book

Sera Parker believes she’s an ordinary young woman embarking on a new life in a charming Virginia town. When her soul clan—including smokin’ hot Archangel Michael, her fellow elementals, air, water, and earth, and a smattering of witches—gather to announce she is one of eight sworn protectors of the Earth plane she doesn’t believe them.

Sera’s default systems for awakening from her dream of being human aren’t doing the trick, the mortal half of her brain is fighting to hold on. As Sera slowly begins to remember her true identity, she realizes there’s still a considerable chunk of her soul memories missingher motivation for making the unthinkable decision to live in the Underworld for three decades among them.

Soul memories are a tricky thing. Too many too soon can drive you mad, and Sera finds herself in the agonizing position of needing to know the reason for her betrayal, and not being sure she can live with the terrible price she might have to pay for the answers. Finding out means a trip to the Summerlands to search the Akashic Records, and Sera worries Goddess will toss her into Darkstar—the seedy afterlife for low-energy beings—the moment she arrives.

Will Sera regain her soul memories without going insane? Can she live down the shame of betraying her true love? Will she learn the truth in time to stop the destruction of the last incarnation of planet Earth?
