AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Viv is on day release from jail to attend the funeral of the drunken thug she thinks is her father, when a stranger appears at the grave and offers to reunite her with the mother Viv thought dead. Desperate to find the only person who’s ever loved her, Viv agrees, and is wrenched through a rift into the male angel fold of Ezam. The stranger is an angel and her father, and that makes Viv a half angel or daimon. Nor is this Viv’s only shock. She discovers Ezam is just one of the countless worlds or folds, that make up the uncountable worlds of the Rynth.

'Her father, the powerful Archae Kald, appoints his handsome protégé Thrisdane, a lower order angel, to train Viv for the long and difficult journey through the rifts to her mother. It is a journey that, once accomplished, will speed Thris and Archae Kald’s quests for transcendence. But life in Ezam can be perilous. There are angels there who believe daimon are abominations that must be destroyed, and even Thris’s closest friends, Ash and Ky, see Viv as a threat.

'Thris is kind and caring, and totally unlike the men Viv has been with before. He strives to keep her safe but Viv has lived on the streets and is both damaged and untrusting. She is also crippled by guilt over the accident that landed her in jail.

'Nor is Viv what she seems. Her name, Violet Iris Vacia, hints at a deeper mystery that, as her latent angel traits emerge and Thris’s desire for her grows, brings terrible risks to their journey through the Rynth. Disaster follows disaster until Viv ends up alone in a terrifying fold of creatures that are half beast and half man. And as they slowly close in, she fears that being part-divine, might not be enough.'
