When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden from him.There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.
The chosen Knights is wonderful mix of Templar knights & supernatural. Lucia and her twin brother Zach are angels on mission. With their uncle and mentor they come to Earth in order to find out what is behind happening in Hawaii High School. Every Friday 13 girls go missing and with next one approaching, it is that more urgent to find whoever is doing it.
In search of clues, Lucia and Zach find that High School is full of supernatural beings. Most are different kinds of demons (not all demons are bad). Together they find that there is something a lot bigger is going on. It will take team of seven to find clues and save everyone.
I really like the way such a different set of characters work together.
I like flow of the story, the second part especially. It took a bit of time to get into the story, after we meat most of the characters, it gets really gripping. My favourite characters were Eli and Jack, as for Lucia, I wish she was more... assertive at times. :)
