When her boyfriend dies in a mysterious fire, high school senior Luce is sent away to a reform school for troubled teens. Her new school is dark and decrepit, with mysterious students who seem even more troubled than herself. But the students at Sword & Cross are much more than they appear, especially Daniel Grigori who is intent on ignoring Luce. She wants to understand the uncontrollable desire and familiarity she feels towards him. He, meanwhile tries to keep Luce at a distance, telling her that discovering the truth of their attraction would kill her as it has many times before. Star-crossed soul mates who for centuries find one another only to lose one another over and over again, their love is the key to a battle between good and evil, love and hate, and ultimately angels and demons. This supernaturally dark romance is sure to leave readers begging for a sequel.
