Two brothers – one a former Army Ranger and the other a former addict. One a hero and the other a class clown.
A father who is nothing more than the memory of a legendary warrior.
An adoptive mother who knows everything, tells nothing.
And a triumvirate of demons hell-bent on their destruction.
James and Rory have no memory of their past, not before they were picked up on a lonely Montana road by Francis Conrad, the eccentric mystic who eventually adopted them. In her care, the two young men were told of their past and the stories of their father. Or so they thought.
Twenty years later, on a trip to Montana to pay tribute to the man they hardly recall, they discover the truth about themselves, their mysterious past, and their father.
Then a cryptic message comes across the radio. “Do NOT come to Montana this year. Your lives will be in danger.” It is from their mother.
And not far behind them is a shape-shifting assassin from another dimension who wants all of them dead.
