    Summary

    Eight years later.

    "To bid goodbye, is to say, ‘I must put you into God’s hands, since I can no longer hold you in mine.’ A goodbye is a capitulation to forces bigger, stronger than ourselves, than our wills, our desires. It is a surrender, of someone dear, to the questionable mercies of the world. One quite literally gives them up.” She sipped at her wine. “Goodbyes are shattering, and devastating, and holy. And life is full of them. Do not try to make them easy. Far better to make them worthwhile."

    Summary

    Regina Mills is owner and proprietor of the Black Soul coffee shop in Boston, but is better known throughout the universe as Regaphiel, Princess of Hell, Destroyer of Kings, Butcher of Babylon, Slaughterer of Sodom, and Evil Queen of England. Around the corner, Emma Swan, better known as Emeleth, Angel First Class and Guardian of the Northern Gate, runs a flower shop called Heavenly Blossoms. They are, ostensibly, sworn enemies, despite the fact that they have a standing joint Sunday brunch reservation at a chic restaurant that serves perfect mimosas.

    One day, Regina finds a baby in an alley and decides to raise it as her own, setting off a chain of events that will affect not just the two of them, but also the denizens of heaven and hell, God, Satan, humanity, and the universe itself.
