Death is a lonely place, silent, or so everyone thinks…
Fern is no stranger to death, or the singing that accompanies it. She has always known when a person is about to die, for the singing foretells it. Her mother passed it off as the oddity never to be discussed, so she learned to tune out the voices until they disappeared for good. Or so she thought.
Then one day, as she fights to bring back a dying baby in the hospital where she works, Fern hears the familiar melody once more. Except this time the voice belongs to a man with ice-blue eyes and black angel wings.
As the baby takes its final breath, the angel sings his last note.
For this isn’t an angel who gives life, it is one that takes it.
One year has passed since that encounter, and just when Fern is beginning to believe it had all been an illusion, the angel returns, and this time he’s not alone. For now there are three Angels of Death and Fern appears to be their next victim.
