To the quiet town of Lamplight, a prophet has come in the form of a monster. The wisdom he brings has the power to change the world in radical ways. He comes to begin an awakening, to open the eyes of all. But he is also a murderer, and his arrival is a reckoning to those who will cross his path:
A detective who is filled with disbelief as he follows a trail of seemingly impossible events.
An aging man, himself a retired detective, who is haunted by his famous case involving two psychopaths and their cult—a case with ties to what is happening now.
And a young woman named Jezebel whose life is split between our own world, and the fantastical and mysterious Higher World beyond the forest down Fairlane Road, a place that may hold the answers to the questions that the dark man’s reckoning brings.
