The path is lost. 

With Michael gone, the mantle of leadership falls to Zadekiel. In this time of darkness, with tempers running short, Zade struggles to guide his brothers. Hope comes in the form of a green haired woman with a unique gift. She represents a way back to the path they lost when Michael disappeared. 

Zephyr fills books with cryptic poetry, a powerful compulsion, which is more a curse than a blessing. With no control over her ability, she struggles to live a normal life. When she meets Zade, he insists her ability is a gift from God. Reluctantly, she agrees to join the cause–it’s hard to dispute a man with wings. 

Now the path is found, but one question remains. Will it lead to further darkness?

~Patricia Josephine talks about characters of colour~

I have to admit, when I first started writing this series, I didn’t think much about the color of my character’s skin. I just wrote the story down. Michael was the only one I really knew what he looked like because his looks had to be so cliché. Blue eyes, blond hair, perfect smile. He was a pretty boy being the archangel Michael. Through Twitter chats and discussions with others about the lack of person of color (POC) characters, like with bisexuality in Snapshots, I wanted to help change that. 

Enter Zadekiel. 

I knew he would be African American. The name fits someone with dark skin so he was a natural choice. My next challenge was going to book one and making sure his appearance was described because people do tend to assume the character is fair skinned. I even do that. It’s important that everyone sees characters in movies and books they can relate to. Everyone can be a hero. Stories are how we discover that.
