From the back cover of the trade paperback:
       Fallen angels and the fey clash against the backdrop of Irish/English conflicts of the 1970s....
       Liam never knew who his father was.  The town of Derry had always assumed that Liam was the bastard of a Protestant.  Liam's mother never spoke of the man, so Liam had assumed him dead.
       When the war between The Fey and The Fallen begins to heat up, Liam and the woman he loves are pulled into a conflict invisible to most humans -- a conflict in which Liam's father fights on the front lines.  This centuries-old battle between supernatural forces seems to mirror the political divisions in 1970s-era Ireland, and Liam is thrown headlong into both conflicts.
       Only the direct intervention of Liam's real father and a secret Catholic order dedicated to fighting The Fallen can save Liam from the mundane and supernatural forces around him, and from the darkness that lurks within.
