Xia Morningstar, the great-grandson of Lucifer, can finally go home to Hell. The question is, do they want him back? The Brat Prince was always a problem, but now he has found his twin sister, been betrayed by a dear friend, and is demanding answers and revenge. The revelation of who the twins’ father is sent chaos through the Morningstar siblings and destroyed the fragile peace between The Fallen and The Host. Both agree it's time to finish a war that never really ended.
But then was Xia betrayed, or was this all part of a divine plan? For you see, The Father, also known as God, Creation’s missing architect, has returned, and the revelations he brings with him have shaken The Powers to their core. His children, in both The Host and Hell, he sees as little more than petulant children. Then there are the Creations and the living, more failed experiments. In the time since he left, The Father has watched and hoped they would find a way to heal their rifts and come together to repair Creation. Sadly, that has not happened, and he has returned to hold everyone, including himself, accountable for their failures.
As The Family Morningstar series races towards its climactic conclusion, the Powers have been asked just one question by their Creator. "Why should I allow this to go on?" But then there is that one other wild card, Xia, for even The Father knows there is destined to be a reckoning, and for the first time since that initial spark of light which started it all, no one is sure what the outcome will be.
