Synopsis: A year ago, eighteen year-old Milayna fought Azazel, Hell’s angel, for her soul. She thought she’d seen the last of him, but he’s back, and he’s brought his friends with him. The Four Brothers want Milayna’s life, and they have wicked powers to use to take it.
While Milayna struggles against the Four Brothers, she also has to fight Azazel for her younger brother’s soul. Ben is at a crucial point in his life—a time when he is weakest to Azazel and his powers. Milayna has to shield her brother from Azazel until Ben reaches the age of accountability and enters a period of safety from Azazel and his soul-sucking demons.
As if having four demon brothers out to end her life and Hell’s angel out to steal her brother’s soul wasn’t enough, Milayna is still reeling from the disappearance of Chay. Can she find him in time to save their relationship? Or will the constant struggle with Hell and all its evil send her seeking comfort in the arms of Xavier?

Excerpt #1 for The Innocent by Michelle K. Pickett:
“So, how’s school?” Grams asked. Her gaze searched mine.
“Good. I like it, but I think I’m going to take the rest of the semester off.”
My grandmother frowned. “It’s your first semester.” She studied me for a minute. “Something’s wrong. The boy?”
I nodded. “I miss him.”
“Mm-hmm. Yes, I know that. But I didn’t mean that boy. I meant the other one.” She looked at Benjamin, who was happily building houses with his Legos only to crush them with his cars.
“I had a feeling. What do you see, child?” She rolled her wheelchair closer to me and leaned forward.
“Yeah, how’d you know?” I asked slowly.
“They’re the Four Brothers. They were above Abaddon.”
“The Four Brothers?”
She ticked their names off on her fingers. “Yann, Brann, Jord, and Himmel. The Four Brothers. They’re nasty, Milayna. If they’re helping Azazel, you’re going to have one helluva fight on your hands.”
Shit on a stick. I don’t like that answer. Let’s try for another one.
I glanced at Ben, and then back to my grams. “Why now? Why are they showing up now?”
“You’re stronger. You were able to outwit Azazel, which was bad, but not devastating because they had Abaddon, and he could still kill you. But you up and put a wrench in their plans when you killed him. Essentially, you killed your own assassin. You took out their back-up plan. So they’re coming to take care of the problem themselves.”
“And Azazel? What does he have to do with this?” I asked.
A shiver ran down my spine and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up like little soldiers.
“That’s easy, Milayna. He’s coming for Benjamin.”
