Angela Mathers is plagued by visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Released from a mental institution where she has been locked away after the death of her parents, she arrives at West Wood Academy, the Vatican's exclusive university, hoping to begin a new, normal, life. But Angela isn't normal. With her dark red hair and alabaster skin, she is a blood head-a being blessed with strange, mystical powers. Among her kind, one is more powerful than any other: the Archon, the human reincarnation of the dead angel Raziel. When the Archon arises as foretold in the prophecies, it will rule the supernatural universe. While a secret coven plots within the Academy's ancient walls, demons and angels walk among humans, searching for Raziel's key. Angela has no desire to conquer a celestial universe. The choice, however, might not be her own. A dangerous enemy is determined to destroy her and a magnetic novitiate wants to save her. Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, she must soon face the truth about herself and her world. It is she who holds the key to Heaven and Hell - and both will stop at nothing to possess her.

Back cover copy

Angela Mathers is obsessed with visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Released from a mental institution, she hopes her new university, West Wood Academy, will give her the chance at a normal life.

But such is not to be. . . . For a secret coven plots within West Wood, and demons and angels alike walk the streets of Luz, searching for the key to open Raziel's book--a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some wish to destroy Raziel, others, like the Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, to free him. For when the Archon rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe.

Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to both Heaven and Hell, and both will stop at nothing to possess her. . . .

Review quote

"These angels can be vindictive and cruel, more human than you might expect and oozing supernatural abilities... If you think you have the guts to take on this novel pick it up." -- Boulder Examiner "A dark, bold story." -- Lexington Literature Examiner "With the first installment in her trilogy, Benulis uses lush descriptions and larger than life characters to tell the story of a battle between Heaven and Hell... I will definitely be on the lookout for the next installment in her book of Raziel series." -- Suspense Magazine "Angela is someone I would want to be friends with, someone I would want to have in my corner. She's out of her mind, a little, but honestly - who isn't?" -- Fictional Distraction "Forget what you think you know and allow the book to show you a new vision of angels and demons. It's a terrifying one, but extremely interesting." -- Sci-Fi Fan Letter "Even when I wasn't reading, I felt a little like I had one foot in the book and the other in reality." -- Literary Feline "This plot is original in every way, and it resembles nothing that I have ever read before." -- The Wilkes Beacon "In this fascinating, well written first novel, Sabrina Benulis has created a world where it's hard to tell the demons and angels apart. Be prepared to read this one in one sitting because it's one of those rare novels that grabs you and doesn't let go." -- The Baryon Review
