The last few weeks of Derek''s life have taken one horrifying turn after another. A dead soul reanimated his brother''s body. A Legion of souls returned to wage war on the living. And Derek discovered that his role in the war is more pivotal?and more terrifying?than he ever could have imagined. Now it all comes down to this. The Rift between the worlds of the living and the dead has to be closed forever. It seems like an impossible task. And it rests squarely on the shoulders of a fourteen-year-old, slightly overweight, not particularly heroic kid named Derek Stone.
