It starts with a school shooting.
It ends with the return of an evil as ancient as the skeleton of the universe.
In the middle, normal, garden-variety people must figure out how to live their everyday lives—how to survive!—after they discover that all those childhood horror stories … well, most of them are true.
Invisible monsters really do prowl among us every day.
There really does exist in the real world a winged creature more horrifying than any Hollywood-animated, computer-generated, mechanical unreality.
And the single-minded mission of that beast—a creation of absolute, soul-less evil—really is to kill Jack Carpenter.
No, that’s crazy! Fairy-tale-science-fiction-horror-movie-bogeyman crap!
Bottom line: it flat-out cannot possibly be true.
But it is.
