Matching wits with mythical creatures and slaying monsters aren't part of Dylan Gunn's usual routine. As a man ravaged by betrayal and paralysed by the prospect of divorce, Dylan barely recognises the skeleton of a face peering back at him from the mirror. Only his love for his daughter has kept him from falling completely apart.
Then a reunion with a mysterious dream woman from his past and a chance encounter with a mystical stripper thrust Dylan into a world unseen by most and sends him careening down a path towards mortal danger and salvation. He is offered a chance to shed the horrors of his current situation if he can become the hero he needs to be. It's a trial by fire, will he burn away the pain of his past or will he perish in the flames?
