Thousands of years ago, a tragic love story brought about the dreaded Darkness. Alex was one of the first of two shamans, and it was his love that allowed an ancient being into the world, causing a curse that would last hundreds of lifetimes. Now, in the present day, Alex has learned that the Darkness has been awakened once again, and he is the one to stop it.
The return of the Darkness marks the last of Alex’s lives and possibly the end of the whole spirit world. With the help of his spirit guides, Alex must learn the secrets that connect our world to the other side in order to rally much needed support and end the age-old battle between good and evil. However, to succeed, Alex must make a terrible choice.
He has to choose between a love that has lasted since the beginning of time and the salvation of creation and beyond. Tragically, he will learn that it can be easier to embrace darkness rather than light, which will destroy all the good he has created. Alex has history, and he wishes to honor that history—and that love—but at what cost? As he fights to hang on, he might lose everything.
