As an Air Force pilot recruited for a secret government agency, Amber Dallas is prepared for dangerous missions. People with powers, threats from space - no problem. What she isn't prepared for is a mission to the small town of Bulwark.

After the violent attack of two teens, Sheriff Clay Finnes dispels rumors the girls tried to contact an evil spirit. He has no ambition to work with the FBI or anyone else. But Amber grew up in Bulwark. She knows this place is the capitol of strange events and she knows what happened to the girls has happened before.

Twenty years ago, Amber left Bulwark without looking back. To complete her training and reach agent status, she'll face her worst fear. No one remembers that night except Amber...
