Luce has always seen shadows

They were there ...
the night of the fire.

They linger ...
in dark places.

Now, they've followed
her to Sword & Cross.

But they're not
finished haunting her yet.

Torn ...
between two boys.

Luce may find
a way to escape the shadows.

But what if the person
you were meant to be with ...

Could never be yours?

Can love alone
save Luce this time?

Or is her life
destined to end ...

Again and again ...
for centuries?

Some angels ...
are meant to fall.

* Lucinda 'Luce' Price

Luce is the main protagonist of the novel. She has black hair and hazel eyes. She began seeing 'Shadows', amorphous, sinister apparitions, at a young age. As a child, she tells her parents about this phenomenon, troubling them, and causing them to take her to many psychiatrists and psychologists who put her on anti-psychotic drugs, which do not make the shadows abate. Years later, when she is off the pills and is attempting to fit in and act like a "normal" teenager, she is invited to a beach party where her "friend with benefits", Trevor, is caught in a fire in a cabin while she kisses him. Trevor dies, causing Luce to be transferred to a reform school called Sword & Cross. She is befriended almost immediately by Arriane, another student studying there, and soon makes friends with Pennyweather "Penn," Cam, and the librarian, Miss Sophia. She is also inexplicably drawn to Daniel Grigori, whom she believes that she recognizes from somewhere.

* Daniel Grigori

Daniel is a fallen angel - a heavenly being who chose to side with neither God nor Satan at the beginning of time - and Luce's main romantic interest. He is described as a handsome blond, with gray-violet eyes. He saves Luce from a falling statue of an angel in the cemetery adjoining the school. He feigns disinterest in Luce, trying to ignore her for her own "safety", but is drawn to her nonetheless.

* Miss Sophia

Miss Sophia is the school's librarian. She appears to like Luce and Penn, considering them good students and approves of their interest in the library. She teaches the Religion and has very strong beliefs on the subject. It is later discovered that she is in fact one of the 24 Elders of Zhsmaelin, a radical heavenly sect. She is an elderly lady with black eyes and silver hair.
