"For Doctor Callisto Darkholme, Essauberg was supposed to be her perfect home. Having moved from the hustle and bustle of the big city to the sleepy mountain town in the wilds of New Hampshire, she had quickly settled in to her new life making new friends and enjoying the slower pace of life. Not everything is perfect in her world though as she tries to come to terms with the car accident that left her with total amnesia. With the help of Lexa Bridge, the local Sheriff and her new best friend she is trying to piece her life back together and learn more about who she was before the accident.

Doctor Marcus Knort is on a mission to find the Origin, the location of the very first Rift on Earth and he believes he has found it in the mountains just north of Essauberg. Posing as a student he has been living in the sleepy town for months backed up by a mysterious Aemon who calls this idyllic town home. With his theory all but proven, Marcus asks the Regent to come to Essauberg to review his findings, little knowing during his work he had tripped an ancient trap and unleashed a darkness over this sleepy town.
For Cali and Lexa what should have been a girl's night out up in the forest takes a darker twist as they are forced back to their official duties, sent to investigate an emergency call from a local resident only to find a gruesome bloodbath. On the run from creatures that defy belief as these vicious predators close in, Cali finds herself faced with her own past, realising her life is not quite what she had thought it was as she learns the secret of who she really is but perhaps more importantly, what she really is."
