Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
~ Rabindranath Tagore ~
Damascus Knowles knows that he is heading for trouble the day he falls in love with a human teenager, Amelia Donovan.
As an angel sent to earth as a watchman to protect it from fallen, evil angels; he had broken the most cardinal law - falling in love. His failed attempts to stay away from her, leads to her finding out what he is which puts Amelia’s life in danger.
After a brief time together, Damascus’s fears come to pass when higher ranking angels find out what he has done and remove him from the earth without so much as a goodbye; leaving Amelia distraught.
Months later Amelia is seized by one of the rebel angels, who also happen to be Damascus’s former brother Demetrius. This is a deliberate move by Demetrius to draw Damascus out and he is forced to return to the earth. When Damascus is back on earth he receives word from his brother who challenges him to a duel. The stakes, being Amelia’s life, starts a great war between Heaven and Earth.
“My name is Amelia and you must be Thomas’s brother?” “Yes.” He replied confidently. “I’m Damascus, nice to meet you, Amelia.” He offered his hand and I nervously gave him mine. “Do you care to walk back with me? It’s a bit lonely out here.” He smiled still holding my hand and I quickly retrieved it while nodding. There was something different, almost supernatural about him. I walked. He glided. I talked. He sang. I gestured. He conducted. I smiled. He gleamed. I was mesmerized by his every move.
