As if being locked up in the crazy house wasn’t bad enough, I wake up to discover that my nightmares are coming true. As in, the person I trust most in the world just morphed into a bloodthirsty monster. My only chance for escape comes in the form of two women who start calling out from within a shimmering tunnel. So, it’s either stick around and get murdered or jump through some kind of portal. And there I was thinking my new meds were working…

While we know next to nothing about the supernatural force we’re up against, we do know it changes form by hopping in and out of other peoples’ bodies. And, right now, the body it wants most is mine.
