Dan Vindico is the Chief of Elite Iodex, the fiercest, peacekeeping, police force in the Realm. A man constructed of raw sinew and steel, he's sought revenge for his fiancée's murder for the last decade. As he tears apart the men responsible, he finds himself drowning in the riptide. Amelia's kidnapper is going to walk free. The knowledge drives Dan to the brink.
Rainer Lawson, son of the assassinated Crown Governor and the newest officer to earn the Elite rank, can't seem to do anything more than watch his boss be crushed under the weight. With Emily on another continent, Rainer has already let his guard down for one brief moment and has seen the brutality of the Interfeci. They've taken something he can't ever get back. Can they be stopped?
Can anyone save Vindico from the hellish abyss he seems determined to let consume him? He can't continue on. He's reached Rock Bottom. Narrowly escaping certain imprisonment and possible death, his body seems unwilling to fight anymore. Perhaps, what he needs are the wings of an Angel to nurse those savage wounds and bring him back from the depths. Can he have anything good in his life? Can true love come twice in a lifetime? Can he keep her from ending up in a grave beside Amelia's? Could it ever be worth the risk?
