Just about anything can happen to a Nephilim who is foolish enough to venture on the wrong side of the Dark Veil. It is the year 1748 and the height of slavery. A member of the band of half-breed black angels could easily be mistaken for one of the humans enslaved on a nearby plantation or, even worse, a slave catcher or demon could get ahold of him.
All hell breaks loose when the only son of a well-connected Nephilim aristocrat disappears from the Atchafalaya Swamp without a trace. The Nephilim King orders the immortal Brothers of the Dark Veil to scour every inch of the swamp to find him, dead or alive.
Preternatural and human worlds collide when a trusted member of the Brothers of the Dark Veil meets an Obeah Priestess enslaved on Magnolia Hill, the most infamous plantation in Louisiana. Theirs is a forbidden love that will pierce the Dark Veil and shatter the secret world of the half-breed black angels forever.
