For Grace, eternal life isn't all it's cracked up to be, not when her skin gets so itchy when she messes up, she's afraid she might scratch herself to death.
As much as she tries to follow her mentor's advice, being a perfect Angel doesn't seem to fit with her personality. Or she wouldn't have fallen for Nate, wouldn't curse all the time, and she'd be more patient about gaining her independence and her sword.
Then, Demon Robert Blackwing starts stalking her to get her to understand /something/. Why does he care what Nate has been teaching her? And why, oh, why is he the only other person who can see the layer-like force that threatens to engulf the Earth and drain the energy out of every living soul?
Banished from her world for damning perfection, Grace is forced to quickly adapt if she wants to save humanity from the worst threat it's ever faced - its own deteriorating nature.
And, in the end, setting off the Apocalypse might be the only way to save the world.

"Okay, I kind of went off and did some binge reading on Men In Tights. So this review may be off because I still have that in my mind and cannot remember what all was in this chapter." - @Cross-Warrior
