Abigail Wright really has it made. As the lead singer for the internationally acclaimed band, Avalon Nights, she enjoys a career that most people would kill for. She has great friends and awesome hours. Life literally couldn’t get any better. Maybe that’s why fate just couldn’t leave her alone. Two mysterious men enter the scene, each with information about her enigmatic father that disappeared before she was born. They speak of paranormal events, angels and demons and tremendous responsibility being dropped squarely on her shoulders. As if dodging snarky reviewers and odd fans wasn’t bad enough, she has to come to terms with the fact that real monsters may exist. The choice before her is whether to embrace that world for the good of humanity or turn her back on her heritage.
“What chance is there in talking to you?” I asked. “Other than a need to have my head examined for entertaining some crazy guy who won’t take, go away, for an answer.”
“Are you asking me to go away?” He tilted his head curiously. “Or is that just something you think you should say? We’re wasting time. You could be asking a lot more interesting questions.”
“Fine, how do you know my father?” I lifted my finger. “Be careful how you answer that. If I don’t like your answer, you’re out of here.”
His grin turned sinister and it made me take a step back. I could sense that he was suggesting there was no way that security was going to be leading him anywhere. For the first time since I encountered him, I lost all my indignation and became alarmed. Perhaps he was more dangerous than I gave him credit.
“Very well,” Ian replied. “I knew your father before you were born. He was on the opposite side of a mutual disagreement. When he met your mother, everyone figured that he was out of the game, but someone decided that it didn’t matter. After you were conceived, one of us took advantage of his weakness and that’s why you didn’t get to know him.”
“Are you saying that someone hurt my father?”
“I’m saying someone murdered him.”
