Haven Terra is still recovering from an internship that brought her literally to the brink of hell when a trip to New Orleans leads to more trouble. There, while taking part in a student volunteer program, Haven and her friends Dante and Lance run across an enclave of devils known as the Krewe.
These shape-shifting devils are more reckless and vicious than any Haven, Lance, and Dante have encountered. Yet the friends soon discover that their French Quarter housemates are also angels in training, and together they must face off with the Krewe in their quest for wings.
But Haven's resolve is tested when Lucian, the repentant devil with whom she was infatuated, resurfaces and asks her for help escaping the underworld. Can he be trusted? Or will aiding him cost Haven her angel wings--and her life?
"Stands atop the current heap of angel books."

Mysterious and deliciously creepy, Agresti's debut will keep you turning pages until the explosive climax."--Cara Lynn Shultz, author of Spellbound "Agresti's story accelerates to an exciting climax, and the blossoming romance is sweet and satisfying."--Publisher's Weekly "Move over Twilight!"--US Weekly "Equal parts romantic and mysterious, and will keep you itching for the next installment!"—Seventeen.com "Such an enchanting book and we can’t wait to read more in the Gilded Wings series. While the cover reels you in (How could it not? It’s so pretty!), the words inside keep you reading. There’s angels, mystery, beauty . . . which all rolled up into one, makes it magical."—Just Jared Jr.
