Sean Gryphon has fought demons, werewolves, and other monsters that would give most people Lovecraftian nightmares without a second thought. He's tired of fighting, tired of killing, and most of all tired of protecting the human race when they seem intent on destroying themselves.
Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. For Sean, that curve ball comes in the form of an ancient manuscript and the woman who found it. The document holds the secret to opening a gateway to Hell on Earth. Dr. Ilsy Hillerman holds the text and a few secrets of her own.
What should have been a simple job of protecting one person changes Sean's life in ways he never imagined. Sometimes, dying is the best option.
