Shunned and ostracized Mira is alone in her own community.
Creeped out by her new bodyguards, Mira jumps at the first chance to get out of Emmit's apartment and back on the case. Getting closer to Gabriel is an added benefit, even if he can't decide what he wants. While Gabriel and Emmit butt heads, Mira struggles to keep her bad karma in check. Getting someone killed is bound to leave permanent black marks on her soul.
Gabriel is torn by wanting to keep Mira close to him and needing to keep her safe. When the enemy makes a bold move to take Mira, even Harker isn't able to protect her. Seeing the threats against Mira, Gabriel is faced with the risk of becoming a fallen angel. He doesn't care if his wings turn black as night if it means he can save her.
Mira finds herself making a decision that effects all their lives. Voluntarily going into the Ether isn't the smartest move Mira can make, but is it the right one?
