The archangel Azrael had left Heaven a long time ago. But when war in Heaven breaks out, she returns, only to be cast down with a spell of demonic origins just as she was dying, reverting her to a human age of three years. After being left alone in the outside world, she forgets what she is. Pulled into the battles hunters fight when she meets Sam Winchester-a lovable, yet haunted hunter-and his hard brother, Dean Winchester-gruff and a perfect soldier-she begins to remember...only to be caught in the middle of a huge plot that may wipe the Earth from existence, and a bunch of angels who are brainwashed into thinking that free will is a crime. Azrael may have to choose between the family that hates her, or the family that loves her unconditionally.
