Hey - my name's CiCi Pendleton and I'm a guardian angel. I'm sort of new to the guardian game which I suppose is why Upper Management sent Henry Montrose to help me (not that I needed him or his help).
My job is to stick close to Jack Harkin. I'm an Advisor, so I'm available if Jack needs pointing in the right direction. But all of a sudden Henry showed up, and before you know it, we've got demons running around, putting me and Jack in danger (I blame Henry for that).
Henry's useful, though. He knows how to cook (gourmet stuff). He knows how to fight demons (he's got a wicked cane that scalds a bad guy). And he knows what Upper Management wants me to do--the real thing, not the cover story I was given.
The problem is, Henry won't tell me. He's hiding a lot of secrets. One Huge Secret is about his own past and his entrapment by a demon witch. Henry still hasn't recovered from that. Upper Management is making him pay the price for going over to the other side, albeit briefly.
It turns out that I'm the price he has to pay.
If he's going to be rescued, I have to do it. I need to put on my Big Girl Panties, grab my squirt gun filled with holy water, and step into the demon's den.
I just hope I come out of it with him and me alive.
