The first book in a smashing new fantasy series that picks up where 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' and Harry Potter leave off.
Every child fears the monsters in the closet, but for Devon March, the monsters are real. Horrible, unholy things come slithering out across his floor, determined to take the boy with them back down their Hellhole.
But Devon is no ordinary kid. He can move objects with his mind, levitate his dog, disappear at will - and that's only what he's discovered so far. He is, in fact, a sorcerer of the Order of the Nightwing, a three-thousand-year-old tradition of mysticism and magic - and the much-heralded 100th generation since the order's founding. But Devon is unaware of this heritage. His powers - and the demons in his closet - remain for him unexplainable mysteries.
At fifteen, he is sent to live at Ravenscliff, a mysterious, dark mansion overlooking the coast of Rhode Island - and there he begins to learn the truth of who and what he is. For Ravenscliff is built over one of the largest Hellholes in the world, and Devon's new family, the Muirs, are secretly descendants of the proud and powerful Nightwing.
Terrifying events have caused the Muirs to renounce their heritage - and so it is left to the uninitiated Devon to fight off the denizens of the Hellhole. Meanwhile, Devon tries to hide his powers and act like a normal teenager at Misery Point High - until the evil demons start to take the shape of his new friends . . .
