There is need. And then there is Fate...
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.
Alex is still recovering from killing her mother and from almost being turned into a daimon. Now there are attacks occurring in the Covenant, something that has never happened before. Everybody thinks Alex is the insideman for the evil creatures, and how can she disprove them when she has the tags and its impossible to identify a daimon half? Alex must face the Consul and accept her roll as the future Appollyon.
