When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar.

There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

My Review:

"Mary Ting has done it again. She has create a supernatural world of Angels, Demons, and Vampires. A world that will leave you on the edge of your seat. A world where out of the darkness forbidden love blossoms." 

I was so excited for this book! Back in the lives of the Angels and the Crossroads world! Oh, how I have missed them. We get to see how Davin, Zack, and Lucia survive in the human world. As if being a teenager in high school isn't hard enough. Try being an angel who has never been around humans and has to try to fit in. Especially when the reason you are there is a dangerous one. Teenager are disappearing.The pieces start to come together and Zack and Lucia notice something is strange pretty quickly. Things are not what they seem. There is evil at work here. A more powerful evil then they could have imagined. They will not be able to do this on their own. They will need help if they are to survive.

The world building and story lines were awesome in this book. The Knights Templar and their descendants, Demons, Angels, Vampires yes please!!  So of course I was sucked in immediately. The book with secret clues to the treasure. I loved being introduced to this world and I am so excited about where this story is going!

On top of all that Lucia is dealing with a whole different problem. Hormones....Yes, those darn hormones that run rampant in high school. Lucia and Zack are suppose to distance themselves and not care to much about people. If they think with their heart to much they will make reckless decisions and will end up heartbroken. This proves to be a difficult task. The heart is made to love even if it's against the rules. There is nothing better then forbidden love. The kind of love that you would give your life for. I have high hopes for love in the next book! 

This book was so much fun to read. I read the whole thing in 2 days. I was sucked into the paranormal world so fast. So much happened. Love, friendship, and loss all in one. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
