Death is the beginning. Life is the shadow. © Dark Dragon Publishing 2010 All rights reserved

Released from more than one hundred years of revenge, the Angel of Death is no longer a tool for the Grand Council of the Chosen. He is finally free to return to a semblance of a life with Father Paul Notus.

Haunted by nightmares of his past misdeeds and failings the Angel wants nothing more than to be left alone. It is across the Atlantic, in a foreign country, that he joins Notus, taking up the mantle once more as a protector in a land where those who would see him dead have flourished.

Corbie Vale has not forgotten what the Angel has done. His own burning need to see the Angel humiliated and  Destroyed sets into motion a carefully seeded plan despite warnings of greater retribution.

Now in Corbie’s territory, the Angel’s sword becomes the lure to a trap, one that changes the Angel by giving him what he never dreamed of – mortality.
