A masked phantom carving a scarlet swath through Ohio is forecasting the apocalypse. Called “The Carrion Crow,” he believes an ancient prophecy about the savagery of mankind is coming to pass.
Two fierce souls who stand in the harbinger’s way could, unintentionally, prove him right. Stacia Rose is an apt college student, a perky cheerleader and a thrill-seeking urban explorer. Lori “Bedhead” Stoesz is a burned out combat vet haunted by monstrous visions, in particular the spirit of a battle-scarred child. Their intense fascination with the dark leads them to confront the shadowy villain, their inner demons, and an ultimate revelation.
