AN UNLIKELY ORDER OF LIGHTS
A Young Adult Fantasy
Sixteen-year-old Avery and her father are outcasts. She is the islands’ last Unholy, one who can harness the wicked magic of demons, and he is a traitor, mercilessly fined for refusing to kill her as an infant. Now, Avery makes frequent midnight outings to gamble, relying on her clairvoyant dreams to predict the winning hand and donating her earnings to lessen her father’s debt.
When a rogue demon attacks the archipelago and curses her father into a coma, no one is able to wake him. What's more, the deplorable Archangel Adams has the people convinced that Avery used her Unholy magic and commanded the attack. With an angel army hunting her down, Avery goes on the run, guided by her dreams and determined to find the mythic order of angels capable of healing her father.
But the demon follows her every move, leaving a trail of cursed bodies in his wake. As Avery realizes she may, in fact, be subconsciously commanding him, she summons the demon and learns that he can reverse her father’s curse. But the reversal comes at a price, and would result in the suffering of everyone else on the islands.
At the risk of becoming the villain she was always said to be, Avery must decide whom to save: her father, or everyone who has ever hated her.
