      What if magic was real? Not the magic of tribal shaman, Indian mystics, Wiccan witches, nor even the legerdemain of telephone psychics, but real honest-to-goodness magic. The Christian Bible is full of references to real magic, from Moses to a pantheon of Angels and demons, Powers which walk the Earth and skulk in shadows, the mythos of the supernatural. And demons.
    The Biblical demon, the Legion, was only banished, its diabolical power only diminished, when it was confronted with the Son of God.

    What if it came back?

    Returning to Earth after almost 2000 years, the demon has a mission: to open a gateway to Hell, shift the infernal balance of power, and trigger an Armageddon which makes Revelations pale in comparison. Standing against the demon is an ancient order of sorcerers and warriors, descended from the Angels themselves. But the demon, able to possess more than a thousand people simultaneously, may prove too powerful for even them, and the world's fate will rest on the shoulders of a seventeen year old girl warrior-in-training, and the mysterious powers of her equally enigmatic boyfriend.
