Michael and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their children safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children, Zachary and Lucia, were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From the age they were able to hold a sword, they were trained to become the best and to ensure they would become leaders one day.
All is peaceful throughout the land until the Fallen and demons’ presences were felt in the between and on Earth. As the Venators investigate these locations, they will quickly learn how dangerous their lives are. Hearts will be broken. Teammates will lose their lives. And they will face obstacles which will test their faith.
As danger grows, the fear of fallen angels and demons regrouping has the Divine Elders on pins and needles. Now, Zachary and Lucia, along with Uncle Davin, must prepare themselves—mentally and physically—to live on Earth to investigate where the focal point of evil resides before it’s too late.
Angels warring against demons,what's not to love? I was immediately draw in to the characters.By the time I finished reading I was messaging Mary Ting telling her I was now overcome with the urge to complete my reading of The Crossroads Saga(I only read book 1) because I wanted to know more of Michael and Claudia's story. And it isn't all fighting and Angel business,there is plenty of humor and playfulness instigated by the "grown ups".
