Brooke Kennedy & Briana Gaitan
Can the person who was sent to steal your soul, be the same person who steals your heart?
The keepers are protectors of the planet Cabalin, charged with defeating identified enemies and
preventing other planets from waging war on their dying planet. They are expected to keep their emotions
in check and do as they are told no matter what the consequences. One of their rising warriors, however,
has been placed on sabbatical for reasons unknown to those around him. Rebellious, impulsive, and
moody, Ash has continued to break the rules by frequenting the Ethereal Underground, the seedy hang out
in the eighth layer of the planet. Ash has always believed in the keeper’s cause, but his taste for adventure
always seems to get him in trouble.
The seraphs live on a different plane of existence. They watch over the mortals and reap their souls when
it is time for them to depart to the afterlife, but do not associate with the beings otherwise. They are
duty bound and loyal creatures, each of them having an affinity for a force of nature that they can use
when needed. When a seraph breaks the rules, they are banished and stripped of their affinity. These evil
creatures are named the fallen. Annalise, a reaper seraph blessed with an affinity for water, has always
followed the rules until she is called to reap Ash’s soul and take it to the afterlife. This time, however, she
finds it difficult to take the soul.
Their worlds were never supposed to meet. Now everyone’s future is in jeopardy, their lives turned upside
down as they find themselves on the run from the very people they thought they could count on. The two
of them must search for a way to clear their names and hunt down the evil forces of the fallen, without losing themselves or those they hold dearest. This epic fantasy will take you on an exhilarating quest for love, truth, and revenge.

Excerpt From The Book!
Ash climbed up beside her and scanned the crowd. Thestaircase behind them carried people who came up from
downstairs where the card tables were, so minus the threat
that someone could sneak up behind them, it was a great
scoping place. From here; he could see almost the entire bar.
Patches of smoke moved across the bar like clouds, covering
a few patrons, but most of the crowd was in plain sight. Why
was she looking for a fallen? The fallen were the evil
counterparts of an ancient extinct species, the seraph. As far
as he knew, the fallen never really existed. He had never met
anyone who had actually seen one. It was mainly rumors and
hearsay, although some of the older keepers did believe in
the species and spoke of them often. For some reason, in
spite of his doubts, tonight his interest was piqued; he
wanted to catch this Loki.
“Who wants a fallen? Are you sure this isn’t a joke?” He
tried to keep his voice even and nonchalant.
Arie laughed, “Don’t be sly. You know I can’t talk about
that with you. Trust me though. They are real.”
He shrugged, it was worth a try. She had to keep her
client list confidential.
“I can tell you that someone has a very big grudge
against this one, and if daddy’s sources are right, he is
supposed to be here tonight.” He could feel her foot tap
along the railing impatiently. A nervous tick that always
made him cringe. He reached out and put a hand on her leg
to steady her.
She was tense, more so than usual, she was scared of
capturing a fallen. He didn’t blame her though, not too often
do you come across an immortal species who could take you
out with a blink of an eye.
“How do you plan to capture him if he is immortal?”
Arie patted her side to show the gun she carried in a
“Apparently they aren’t really immortal. I have a
weapon to stun him. He is wanted alive. By the way, where’s
your partner in crime?”
It took Ash a moment to realize that she was talking
about Finlay. Finlay was Ash’s sidekick in the Underground.
Finlay scheduled his fights, and they both had an
unquenchable taste for ale and women.
“He’s around somewhere. He ran off after all the bets
were paid out. I bet he has already found some random girl
to dance with.”
Arie snorted loudly in response.
They sat in silence, and scanned the crowd. He had
never seen a fallen before, or even a seraph for that matter. If
he could catch a fallen, Ash was sure that his status among
the keepers would be restored. They were so mad at him
right now; maybe this could work out in his favor. He
remembered some of the ancient stories; keepers who
claimed a seraph had healed them or protected them, and
seraphs that could control elements such as water or fire. He
had even heard a few rumors that fallen had eyes as black as
night. That was all he had to go on, so he sat there scanning
the fading crowd for a face with black eyes.
