Written by mother-son duo
Syrie James and Ryan M. James

The world is trying to tear them apart.

Will they stand together and fight back?

A teenage girl must hide her astonishing new powers as she and her angel-gone-AWOL boyfriend struggle against dangerous celestial beings and stage a risky search for her missing father.

After a season of psychic visions and super-powered drama, Claire Brennan and her Angelic Watcher boyfriend Alec MacKenzie can finally be together. Under the protection of Claire's grandmother, they are trying to lead a normal life, going to high school at Emerson Academy and hanging out with their friends.

But vengeful enemies, the city's new Watcher, and even the school play threaten to break them apart. Not to mention Claire's surprising second power, which could sabotage the trust of everyone she holds dear. And just when they need to stick together, they finally get a lead on where Claire's mysteriously missing father might be.

The threats, which come not only from without but also from within, will test the strength of Alec and Claire's relationship. Is their love enough to keep them safe? If they want to stay together … can they learn to fight together?
