Mankind has been protected for thousands of years- but it comes at a terrible cost.
For 17-year old Jemma Rose, Gainesville, Florida’s an ordinary town, full of everyday people where she’s lived an all too average life, until now.
During an annual trip floating down the river with her two best friends, Jemma’s world becomes turned upside down when someone makes an attempt on her life. Lucky for her, she’s rescued by Zack, a knight in angel armor, who informs Jemma that she’s a Shield, a half-mortal, half-angel descendant of the archangel Gabriel, put on earth to protect humans from the Watchers. Now that both the Watchers and Jemma know her true identity, they won’t stop hunting her until she’s dead.
Forced into hiding and discovering a world she never knew existed before, Jemma becomes a rope used for tug-a-war between the Shields and Watchers where she must make a choice: to take her rightful role as a Shield or risk losing the lives of everyone she loves.
