Can a fallen angel, his band of broken souls, and his nephilim children change the world?
Armaros the Cursed, Satan’s favorite of the Fallen, falls once again after breaking the rules. Fearing an eternity of punishment, he desperately attempts to save himself by sending a bird to his island. The SOS message is received by his beloved congregation. They prepare the great Armaros’ kingdom for his return. Can his loyal worshipers rescue him from the pit?
Halo of the Nephilim is the sequel to Halo of the Damned. The story begins with Armaros’ arrest. Reporters are duped into believing he was gunned down while awaiting trial. Declared dead, his only known surviving daughter, Joanna Easterhouse, proves her relation and inherits everything. She catapults her career from an entry-level advertising assistant to the head of Armaros’ advertising empire. Life couldn’t be better: a windfall inheritance, real power within a major industry, a loving relationship with a former demon, and a baby on the way. She should be on top of the world, but knows everything good must come to an end.
Joanna’s sister, Kim Easterhouse, becomes Kim Slattery after marrying Sean, her dead mother’s probate lawyer. Joanna generously includes them as key players in her advertising chain. They, too, have much to smile about, but a string of events leads them back to old family secrets.
Wickedness looms over the Easterhouse family once more, forcing them into an unlikely showdown filled with page-turning excitement. Like Halo of the Damned, Halo of the Nephilim is filled with conspiracy and angel lore taken directly from scripture and other ancient writings. Nephilim meander the earth in confusion, constantly questioning who they are and where they stand in terms of good and evil. More mind control themes top off this tale of doom. Dina Rae delivers the darkness in the most  
Excerpt

 

Sean smiled. He was more than willing to step in as Maria’s father, one of the many reasons Kim was so in love with him. “You ever think of having another child? A brother or sister for Maria? Joanna’s got a few more months. Just think, Maria, Jo’s baby, our baby…The next generation of--”
 
Of nephilim?” Kim said. The talk of extending their family scared the hell out of her. She recently learned her family was a genetic freak show. She was surprised that Sean even brought up a baby. For the first time in their marriage, anger coursed through her veins. “Are you crazy? I’m not one hundred percent human. My brother killed himself. Joanna self-medicated into a zombie. And she’s even a bigger fool now that she knows the truth. She’s got more angelic blood than I do. With Tony as the father…I can’t imagine why they would…”
 
Please. Don’t talk like that. Everything will be fine. Tony is mortal again and the bloodline will be diluted. Look at Maria. She’s perfect. You and I could have another…”
Yes, Maria is perfect, a perfect carrier. You’re forgetting she was born with six fingers. I don’t want to talk about this,” Kim said with finality. She let go of Sean’s hand and dug her IPod out of her purse. She saw the hurt expression on his face and felt a twinge of guilt. “Sean, can we wait just a little longer…maybe discuss this on our first anniversary?”
You doubt, don’t you. Maybe you’re right. We can wait and see how Joanna and Tony make out. I pray for them and their baby all of the time,” Sean said.
I know you do…”
Kim, let me finish. As much as I love Maria, another child would be nice. I’ll be forty-two this January. I don’t want to be mistaken for some kid’s grandfather. Maybe we could adopt if you’re worried. This is really important to me. First anniversary. Then we can reevaluate.”
Deal. No one would ever mistake you as someone’s grandfather. You’re too gorgeous. I can promise you this--we can practice getting pregnant as often as you like.” Kim flirted, desperate to change the subject.
