Packs of imps and demons terrorize the streets of Trebridge, hoping to grow into powerful demons. GILLEN, the leader of the four Gargoyle Guardians of the city, requests reinforcements to defeat the invaders. His commanders send him four untrained teens from the projects, led by BRITT KELLY. Gillen must train them before the demons kills the teens.
Britt has problems of her own. After her parents’ divorce, she must adjust from living in the suburbs to crowding into her older half-sister’s apartment in the projects. But that’s the least of Britt’s woes. The effigy she discovered in the ruins of St. Edmund’s church turns into a living gargoyle who expects her and her friends to fight demons. Other problems range from her discovering her step-mother is possessed by a demon to her confused feelings for CAHAL, her chemistry partner and second in battle. What could go wrong?
