Fifteen-year-old Dan Kerlin’s life is pretty ordinary: hanging out with his buddy Brian, putting up with the losers his friend Maddie dates, and avoiding the school bully. He’s haunted by nightmares about a demon hunting him in the dark, but he’s had nightmares since his mom died a year ago, so it’s easy to ignore the signs that these might be more than simple dreams.
But when Dan and his new neighbor Sophia have a chance meeting, his world turns upside down in ways he can’t explain. First it’s little things, like strange dreams about a mountain of black glass and a secret key locked away inside him. Things become even stranger—and increasingly dangerous—when Sophia confesses that she’s an angel in human form and tells Dan he has a part to play in a war that is literally as old as time itself.
Soon Dan finds himself surrounded by dogs that can turn human, reanimated corpses, armies of spiders, and a host of demonic entities that seem to want him dead. He needs answers before he and his friends end up as casualties in a conflict they barely understand. But the more he learns the less sure he is of whom to trust, or what he should do.
Dan has powers of his own, and they may prove to be his only hope for survival … but he has no idea how to use them. All he knows is they’re tied to an almost unknowable dimension called Everwhen—a place where all of time exists in a single, eternal moment. There’s an ancient secret at the heart of Everwhen, one which both sides will stop at nothing to uncover, even if it means the universe itself goes up in flames. He needs to figure out his abilities or he could find himself used as a weapon in an epic, everlasting war.
A war where Dan isn’t so sure he wants either side to win.
