About Nascent Shadow
Brooklyn Amari knew not to get in car with a stranger; so much so that when a man tried to lure her―she killed him.
As if taking a man’s life at the tender age of ten wasn’t bad enough, her childhood home burned to the ground two years later. She doesn’t remember how she survived or understand why she’s felt a pull toward the conflagration ever since that night. After a troubled patch in her teens, she’s become a respectable firefighter, rushing again and again into the inferno that almost killed her. A routine sweep-and-clear during a hotel blaze takes a deadly turn, but also explains how she escaped death eleven years ago: she’s probably a demon.
Brooklyn had always enjoyed having psychic abilities, but wings?

Unfortunately, she soon finds herself neck deep in an investigation that goes straight over her head, and oh yeah―she’s probably going to destroy the world.
