A malevolent group of Light-Dealers have surfaced in Cara Collin's hometown of Norfolk, Virginia. Led by an ancient Aztec demon, the "Takers" are torturing and murdering their way to world domination.
As the horror spreads, Cara - who has the ability to send "Light" into others to augment healing - receives a special power from a patient making her a crucial weapon in stopping the Takers. But, she must figure out how to use the gift before the Takers make her their next target.
When mysterious Rolf Van Harding shows up in town with information that may help her, she's torn between joining his quest and running for her life. When she discovers he's a powerful, ancient Light-Dealer, she fears their growing passion will be a weakness - a weakness that could allow the Takers to murder the last remaining Light-Dealer capable of stopping them.
