As a skilled thief, stealing some old necklace should've been a breeze, but Omyn got more than she bargained for when she stole an amulet imbued with an ancient power wanted by angels, dæmons and two fallen brothers.
Seventeen-year-old cyborg, Omyn Winters, makes ends meet by thieving in the wealthier suburbs of Lantis, a fractured, police-run city in the post-WWIII Balkanised States of Asuria. When Omyn is rescued from arrest by a strange young man sporting stellar cybernetics, Omyn is placed in Sam's debt and agrees to steal an ancient amulet. But it's no ordinary trinket, and Sam is no ordinary guy. Forced to accept that it's otherworldy magic lending Sam his impressive powers, Omyn finds herself in the midst of warring supernatural factions, and between Sam and his too-pretty gender-switching brother as both vie for her trust, and the power within the amulet. Just as she thinks she's dealing with the whole mythological situation, Omyn has to accept the fact that she's not even human. When her ex-girlfriend is kidnapped by dæmons, Omyn is forced to take matters into her own hands while trying to deal with her divided nature, fledgling powers and conflicting feelings for Sam, and taking on her dæmon-legion relatives won't be easy.
