Year 2: Redemption
by Tamara Heiner
I betrayed them all. I delivered the dagger to the underworld.
And yet, the masters of the academy did not expel me. Instead, they gave me my wings and told me there is a plan for me.
A plan for me? Sometimes it seems they’ve forgotten who I am. What I am.
I can’t forget. Nor can I forgive myself. But there might be a way to redeem myself. When the archangels offer me a chance to go to earth, I snatch it up. It means I’ll learn more about mortality. How to relate to humans.
And it means I’ll get to spend more time with Maalik, the angel who taught me how to feel joy.
Except earth is dangerous.
Earth has temptations.
Earth is confusing.
And there are too many choices. I don’t know what’s right or wrong anymore.
And I may have just ushered in the Great War.
