Twelve years have passed since there the rip in the sky above London, England brought spirits from another dimension to the world. This event became known as the Veilbreak. It split humanity into the Angels and the Ashkind. Some were magical and others were not, but the event a caused a war between the two factions. Peace now reigns, but it is a fragile peace and there are those who are determined to rid the world of those in charge, the angels. Verdict: I loved this book the plot was wonderful and the characters appealing. I know there will be a sequel and I can’t wait to read it.
