Penny Lane has been dead for more than five years, but her time in the afterlife hasn’t quite prepared her for this—a new afterlife in a brand-new world. As she and her soul mate, Avery, prepare for their new roles, they are told they’ll need everything they’ve learned about ghost retrieval, melting, and mortal studies. Even so, the angels aren’t telling them what those roles are.
Penny’s curiosity is piqued when she finds a castle surrounded by hills. Who built this? Why? Why here? She won’t have long to wait for answers, as she is reunited with old friends and some unexpected faces from the past. The cherubim are going home—if they can get by the dark entities they accidentally created long ago, that is.
Eric, who is now learning more about his human transference, is sad to leave his counseling role in his underground world behind. Poor Avery has to deal with some unwelcome residents. Roy is doing his best to keep things running smoothly over at the Angel Café. And thanks to the seraphims’ various issues, he’s added mediator to his list of chores.
Penny and Avery are struggling to deal with the loss of their old lives, flying, shape-shifting, gargoyles, and an uncertain destiny. “Complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their romance, but they’re doing what they can.
Cherubim Castles and the Garden of Bliss is the first new-world adventure of the Elysium Scrolls. One thing’s for sure: wherever Penny goes, chaos and joy ensue!
