'Lost Archangel' by Hailey King

We've all been warned about making a deal with the devil, but sometimes sixteen-year-old Caleb Stone wonders if making a deal with his Angel brother, Joshua, is any better.

In exchange for answers about their mother's mysterious death, Caleb agrees to sneak into the Underground and retrieve a missing halo that contains the Stone family's biggest secret: the whereabouts of the Archangel, the leader and protector over the entire Stone family line.

Of course only after the deal was made did Joshua let Caleb know that a legion of Demons will be waiting to greet him in the Underground with open claws. After all, details like that just tend to get in the way.
