The Sins of Virtue ~ book one ~ Patience
"Well, heaven forgive him! and forgive us all!
Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall:
Some run from brakes of ice, and answer none:
And some condemned for a fault alone.
—William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure"
The first time sixteen year old Lexie Somers saw Joe Blackstar moving through the crowds at a funfair in south-east London, she found it difficult to look away.
So did he, because no one else had seen him before.
When three girls attack him, Lexie makes the decision to throw herself into the fray, opening herself to a world where Angels and Daemons live side by side.
Now she's being hunted;
The Shades want her Soul,
The Grey's want her dead.
and the Deviants want to know why.
