Angel Crest Series Book 2
by Chelsea O'Neal

~ Cover Reveal! ~


After Jaiden found Daniah in Juniper, they returned to Garnet City. Daniah is destined to become Queen of Zoku, a race of angel half-breeds who protect the humans from a soul-stealing evil. Now, Daniah is learning of her abilities and responsibilities as queen. Just as things seem to be going smoothly, a group of Zoku show up to help, led by an angel, Shelly.

Mallory has been on her own for most of her life, trying to protect and save those
around her.  She is Toyek, and she's been hiding in plain sight while fighting for her life. She is intent on finding her friends' daughter, whatever it takes, when an innocent trip to the
supermarket takes an interesting turn.

Orion has been hired to find a female and, as a Tracker, finding people is his specialty.
He finds much more than he was looking for when he runs into the beautiful Mallory. While pursuing both his target and the resistant Mallory, he finds himself fighting to defend Princess Daniah and the Zoku.

Can Orion and Mallory work together to help Daniah be the hope the Zoku so desperately need? Or will a few surprises and a tragedy be all it takes to break the united front of the Zoku fighting against the evil Meikal?

~Excerpt from Zoku's Hope~

I smile slightly and huff out a breath, “Trev, how could you?” I
ask, then figure I might as well go ahead and say it. “I have tried to avoid
you as much as possible since we got back; makes it kind of hard to talk.” I
watch his eyes go wide.

He opens his mouth to say something then closes it and looks at me
with an odd look on his face. “Why would you avoid me?” 

I sigh and close my eyes for a moment, then look at him and decide
to go for broke and get it out there. “When we were in Tabul, after you kissed
me, I freaked. I thought I wasn’t able to protect you while being so close to
you. But I thought it over and decided that maybe we could try being together. I
was going to tell you that I wanted to be with you and not just as a protector,
but you told me it was a mistake, and that it wouldn’t happen again.” I shrug, then
finish, “I figured you regretted the kiss and didn’t really like me. Since we
have gotten back, I’ve thought about you a lot, and I guess it is easier to
avoid you than to see what I can’t have all the time.” I hold my breath for a
moment, then force myself to take calming breaths and will away the heat in my

before he smiles widely at me. I feel tears prickle, wondering why he has to be
cruel about my feelings, but before I can do much more than feel embarrassed
and hold my tears back, he takes hold of my chin with his thumb and fingers and
makes me look at him.

“Can you see me OK?” he asks, and I have a lump the size of
Grazier in my throat, so I just nod. “I have been in love with you for years. I
wanted you when we kissed, and I have wanted you every moment of every day
since I had that small taste.”

I search his face for the truth in his words
and feel my stomach explode with butterflies. I feel lighter than I have in
months. I feel hope and happiness rise

up in me. Trevor just said that he loves
