"I have always existed, not just me but all of us, the unembodied spirits who wait to live."
Tess is an unborn spirit who is about to embark on a much-awaited journey into mortality, to a brand-new planet called Earth. She is chosen by the Eternals for an important mission and is put under a rigorous training by a half-human, half-lion seraph. This training exposes Tess to some of her darkest fears and insecurities. These experiences force Tess to work on her gift as a discerner of thoughts and reader of auras, thus helping her become one of heaven's most powerful angels.
But even angels falter, and deep inside her a gnawing fear is growing. Will she meet her soul mate in life? Will their love be strong enough to overcome the forgetting effects of the Veil? And is she prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping the most dangerous renegade and leader of the Fallen Angels at bay during mortality?
