Welcome to the world of the Senyaza Series, where the illicit human-blooded offspring of angels and demons and gods have organized into the powerful Senyaza Corporation. Together they've worked for millennia to secretly protect humanity from the celestial powers that crave dominion, while securing themselves against an uncertain future. But after centuries of a supernatural status quo, the jagged wheels of fate have once again begun to turn, with two little girls as the winding key.
The children are sheltered, innocent, but those who recognize what they are will move mountains and burn cities to control them. Enter Marley Claviger: an ordinary woman who finds herself in an extraordinary position. When the girls come into her care, she must become the guardian of the children of revelation… no matter what she discovers.
Freelance writer Marley Claviger, prone to anxiety attacks and visions of doom and disaster, is unexpectedly saddled with the four-year-old twin nieces of her friend Zachariah Thorne, who has inexplicably disappeared. Her problems progress rapidly from retrieving the twins' car seats from a locked car to protecting them from supernatural forces that want the girls for mysterious reasons of their own, while a California wildfire approaches over the hills. The opening chapters have a lot of promise; Marley is an engaging character with enjoyably strong female friendships, and as the otherworldly beings gather around her, the mood is intriguingly menacing. But eventually the narrative starts to drag under the weight of Tzavelas's (Nightlights: Disintegration) increasingly complicated mythology of angels and the Hush that keeps them from interfering with humans, the faeries and their own agendas, the Geometries of heaven, angelic and demon curses, kaiju, nephilim, and too much more.
