In the ongoing battle between Good and Evil that began in the beginning of our time, two are pawns of forces beyond their control. Ryder, taken from the clutches of death is neither alive or dead, roams the world fighting for a force he doesn't understand and doesn't want. A world he doesn't understand spirals out of control and only he, through the grooming he is forced to undergo, may be the only chance in this battle. Christy Manahan, running from her past and her perceived sins, stops running and tries for a new future. Little does she know that in this one small action her life will spiral out of control! A battle she doesn't ask for or want will begin for her very soul. She is forced to face her demons and some she doesn't even believe exist. To win this battle she must be stronger than she ever thought possible. As the war ensues, battle to battle like two teams fighting on a field, good and evil fight for real estate is using pawns of their own making.
