Bone-chilling suspense!

Thirteen-year-old Jake Morgan falls into a mud-pit guarding the last gateway to the underworld. A dark and hideous region; the lower astral realm offers little to no escape.


Four teenage Wiccans agree to invoke the Spirit to find their missing brother. The Spirit tells them Jake is alive, and what they can do to save him, but something terrible has risen from the mud-pit. The Vepar, a demon from below, walks the streets of Bridgeport looking for Brenna and the other three witches. Invoking the Spirit can get rid of the Vepar, but the four girls will have to do the Dark One's bidding, and one of them may die trying.
