Award-winning author Sharon Shinn returns to
the "fascinating world"* of Samaria in a richly romantic
tale that begins where Archangel left off. In that time,
the women who craved the attention of angels were known as
angel-seekers, a term used with awe by some-and scorn by
Elizabeth was born to wealth, but circumstances forced her
to live as a servant in her cousin's household. Determined
to change her life, she travels to the town of Cedar Hills,
hoping that an angel will take notice of her, and take her
as his own.
Rebekah is a daughter of the Jansai tribe, raised to hate
the angels. But when she finds an injured angel near her
village, she defies her upbringing to care for him.
In time, these two women, whose paths will cross, will both
find what they long for, in surprising-and dangerous-ways.
