Small-town reporter Eddy Marks always considered her father a bit nuts for believing that an ancient race of warriors live beneath Mount Shasta in Northern California. But when she and her dog Bumper stumble across Dax, a former demon, she's got to reconsider things a bit.
Dax was tossed out of the Abyss and given a chance at paradise by the Edenite -- if he can shut the portal near Mount Shasta that is letting the demons through. He is given a helper in the form of Willow, a will-o'-the-wisp, who can feed him energy. But Dax has only one week to stop a powerful demon. Even with the assistance of Eddy and her father, they will still need help from the legendary Lemurians -- if they can find them.
