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.
