The ancient battle between good and evil is nearing its end. Evil is winning.
Since ancient times, our planet has been visited by super-intelligent aliens who shift between parallel worlds as easily as we move from sunlight to shadow. Described in our myths as angels, gods, and demons, these trans-dimensional beings often walk among us unnoticed, but they’re locked in a battle older than time, with our future hanging in the balance.
The Archons’ goal is to destroy the human race and seize our world for their own. Standing against them are the Irin, a benevolent race of winged aliens with great power but limited numbers. As our planet sinks rapidly toward apocalyptic doom, our only hope lies in the Synaxis, a group of ordinary men and women conscripted by the Irin and given supernormal powers.
But it’s a race against time. And as the Synaxis members trek across the Scottish highlands to open the ancient dimensional portal on Iona, they must overcome heavily-armed psychopaths, flying bat-winged demons, and the awakening of a long-dormant volcano. Most of all, they must learn how to use their fantastic new powers to drive back the Archons and rescue the world from destruction.

What’s love got to do with it? Not a damn thing as far as Sara Livingston can see. Girlfriend has serious attitude. Life and love have not been kind. The last thing on her mind is getting into yet another doomed relationship. Sara’s got too many other things to deal in her life to even think about love, like a boss she can’t stand, sisters who still treat her like a child, a co-worker that could go postal at any moment and a friend tottering on the brink of destruction. Nor can she forget the loser-from-hell that she’s still technically married to but has not seen in three years, so by default, she considers herself a single mother.
Still, when her best friend introduces her to not one, but two men, things turn upside down for Sara. First she meets Franklin, a complex brother who says he’s looking for a good woman and a chance in life…but could that be what he’s really after? Next, she meets Theo, a widower, who, although seemingly nice enough, has a mistrustful daughter, a resentful teenage son, and is still grieving for his wife of twenty years. Sara feels he may have more baggage than she does. However, both men will impact Sara’s life in ways she never imagined. One teaches her the true meaning of love and one teaches her the terror of obsession. When a vicious tragedy strikes, will Sara try to handle it by herself, as usual, or will she lean on the love of a lifetime to help her survive it?
