Starling doesn’t remember how she died nor does she want to. Thankfully, all personal memories are erased once one becomes a divine warrior. Or are they? As if being late to rise wasn’t attention getting and confusing enough, becoming the object of suspicion in a realm that she's only seen glimpses of in her mortal life, surely didn’t help. Quickly befriended by a group of welcoming, fellow warriors was an unexpected relief, but where there are large groups, there are always a few that aren’t so enthused about the newcomer. Especially the unique ones who question everything.
A brand new, immortal existence in the spirit realm was a lot to process and absorb. It was exciting, scary, and frustrating...more so with the discovery of her essence. As far as being branded, she wouldn’t have wished that experience on her worst enemy. Maybe.
Though Cam`ael waits for her, he grows frustrated and impatient, as the darkest parts of his Incubus habits begin to reawaken, begging to be fed. Cam`ael knows that he and Starling will cross paths again. Realizing that she won’t remember him, is the most painful part. Knowing that she will kill him, is the risk that he is willing to take just to see her again.
Adding to his sorrow and torment, Morning Star has been looking for ways to get even, ever since Cam’ael’s battle with Drakael. He blames him for Starlings death. He needed to claim her while she was still mortal, not when she became an immortal force to be reckoned with. However, he still wanted her— even more so now than before.
A new, deadly, demon is roaming the Earth and killing higher level fallen. Cam`ael accidentally becomes his next target and victim.
What has been forbidden becomes a choice, and what lies in the dark, always finds its way to the light.
