At the end of the 21st century, the future of humanity hangs in the balance, caught between the radioactive waste of a half century of nuclear wars and the repressive authority of the Republic. Angels sacrifice their wings to join a secret fraternity of freedom fighters, risking classification as mutants and consignment to the Republic's slave dens. Each warrior is a volunteer, but no angel anticipates the full cost of his fall.
The eyes of the Republic are everywhere...
Lilia Desjardins has never played by the rules and she isn't about to start when her estranged husband’s death is declared an accident. Lilia knows Gid better than that, and if anyone is owed justice, it's the most decent man she's ever known. She leaves all she knows to risk the dark heart of the Republic—only to find that she herself has been targeted by forces unknown and that her deepest secret has not only been uncovered but will be used against her.
Adam Montgomery will do anything to complete his earthly mission and return to the existence he knows, even if he has to seduce the enigmatic Lilia Desjardins. But when his contact is murdered and he must rely upon Lilia’s silence to save him from the slave dens, Adam knows that his wings might be only his first sacrifice.
As danger and intrigue surround them, Lilia and Adam realize they must work together—body, mind and soul—in order to save the world.
This new edition contains an excerpt from GUARDIAN, book #2 in the Prometheus Project.
This series was previously published under the pseudonym Claire Delacroix.

A good futuristic read
I don't normally read futuristic sci-fi type books but this one kept me interested with its dystopian society, " fallen" angels, shades and norms. Throw in a murder mystery, suspicious behavior and a romance and the author was able to keep my attention enough to finish the book in about a day. It is a little scary what authors come up with for our futures, hopefully it never happens.

Lilia Desjardins just wants to knoe who killed her husband. ADAM MONTGOMERY IS TRYING TO SAVE lILIA FROM THOSE WHO ANT TO STOP HER.
It was a hard read for me. To much of a Sci-Fi influence to it. Not what I'm used to from this author. It threw me for a loop. Not a book I would have purchased.
