Angel, a reformed vampire cursed with a soul, is tormented by a vision linking his shameful past to something very big--and very bad--that is coming. As Angel and his friend Fred begin trying to solve the mystery, the goddess Illyria gives Angel some insight and incentive. Then she really gets involved, and Angel discovers that it might be possible to change the future by changing the past.
Taken by Illyria, Angel and Fred find themselves in Illyria's ancient past. The goddess claims it is a mistake, but when she discovers just when they are--in the middle of a battle between her past self and another god--she's not ready to leave without attempting to change the battle's outcome.
With no choice, Angel must help both past and present Illyria in a battle for their people and their land...
