Mare Knotting discovers the beings that gave raise to myth, but what astounds her more than their reality is the fact that they are the children of angels.
A single mother, Mare works hard to provide a good life for her three-and-a-half year-old daughter, Clarissa. And while Clarissa is the reason Mare’s world spins, Clarissa’s father, Christian, has never had anything to do with his daughter. A single, working mom and college student, Mare has too much on her plate for a social life - even after meeting gorgeous Daniel Stotts. Attempting to ignore her attraction to Daniel, Mare must try to discount Daniel’s reciprocated feelings as well.
But after Daniel cautions Mare against participation in a financial-aid project she signs up for, telling her that he believes the corporation sponsoring the project is trying to create a superhuman, Mare deletes Daniel from her radar - believing that he is delusional. And that might be for the best, because Christian’s unanticipated contact makes Mare realize that she had never gotten over her ex-boyfriend like she had thought she had.
Pursuing the project, inhuman beings chase Mare after she submits her results. Daniel rescues her, but it doesn’t escape Mare’s notice that Daniel moves just as inhumanly as the things chasing her. And once he has her to safety, Daniel explains the truth of the world to Mare; Ethereals - fallen angels and their descendents - exist.. and they are where vampire and werewolf legends derive. But when Daniel alleges that he believes the corporation is truly working for Lucifer, Mare is more shocked to find that her research helped to create an army that Satan will use to try to defeat God with on Judgment Day. Already enough to deal with, Mare then learns that Clarissa is the most powerful witch any Ethereal has ever seen.
All too much, Mare blacks out - and wakes to the realization of whom and what she truly is.
