Brendon Alexander was a normal high school kid until his dead grandfather appeared in the flames of a fire and told him of the gift he inherited: He has the power to force a demon from an inflicted body and send the creature back to Hell.
Lisa Stratton, the new girl at school, has a secret of her own—her father is possessed by a demon. She recognizes the scar on Brendon’s chest that brands him as a protected one, but she must discover if he has the ability to cleanse the evil from her father’s body.
The closer Brendon gets to Lisa, the more he uncovers buried secrets from the past. Not hers, but his—his father’s death and the creature that killed him, and the legacy handed down to him from beyond the grave. Burning curiosity and frightening nightmares thrust Brendon deeper into his past while Lisa urges him forward into danger—and into his destiny.
