About the Book

Psychiatrist Rachel Julian has what many dream of—a booming career, an enviable relationship, a joy-filled life—until a bloody premonition warns her that she is in danger. As terrifying threats unfold, her perfect life tailspins out of control. Armed with nothing but her intuition and determination to stay alive, Dr. Julian steps into unknown realms and meets a succession of otherworldly teachers who tell her that beyond the human threats, she has been lured into a spiritual war. To survive, Rachel must fight an enemy she can't even see in a reality many wish did not exist.
