The intricate world-building of Crescent City with the colorful cast and humor of Zodiac Academy

Orphan. Slave. Drug Dealer.

As a Demon-Owned human, in an Afterworld that has Hell and Heaven on Earth, I’m the lowest a being can be. My life is one of drudgery, degradation—and mortal danger. And that’s before I started dealing Angelescence. Unlike anything in existence, it’s a drug only I can produce, and everyone would kill, or die for.

With decommission and execution closing in, I’m desperate to buy out my and my best friend’s Indentures. But upping my operations only gets me arrested, and my terrifying captor drags me to the Celestial Court—on a leash—to stand trial. My sentence?

Conscription to Celestial Academy.

As the most powerful nephilim in history, Godric is Heaven’s most ruthless soldier and assassin. And he’s been assigned with discovering the root of my unprecedented ability to capture Angel Essence.

We both hate our forced proximity—and each other. Especially when the other provokes explosive emotions and cravings we never thought we can experience.

But being embroiled in our private war becomes the least of our worries as he unearths even more disturbing mysteries within me. Meanwhile, a devastating internal war as well as another Apocalypse are brewing…

…and I’m at the center of it all.
