Three months ago, a cosmic storm entered Earth's atmosphere, mystifying scientists with its unprecedented side effect: Those who have died and chosen not to cross over are suddenly palpable and can interact with the living. The "Impals" are embraced by their loved ones but persecuted by those who fear them. The government's solution is to send them "back" using the Tesla Gate - which could destroy the soul.
"Great second installment"
When the eye of the cosmic storm passes over Earth, the Impals - visible spirits who can't cross over - disappear. But an ethereal void opens, releasing the lost souls of murderers, rapists, and genocidal maniacs. As darkness and chaos overtake the Earth, people everywhere face horrific fates. No one is safe who falls into the shadows. General Ott Garrison is immune to harm, which he feels is a sign from God; he is meant to lead.
