As a result of finding her soul mate (Christopher), Ellie has broken her curse, and awakened from her death to find that she has become something mystical, an ethereal Other. A being, whose story has yet to end, where who one is before their death, leads to what they become after … kindness or violence follows in their wake. The Others are ancient creatures, who can help humanity, or cause our destruction … and Ellie has found that monsters are waiting in the mist. On her path to find a guide, she has attracted the attention of one such monster, Echidna -- the mother of malice. Beyond misperceptions and mistakes, throughout journeys and lessons learned, Ellie has left Christopher behind, so that madness and fear begin to tear him apart, just in time for Echidna to crave the act of feasting on the pieces.
