Jake Carter’s first mistake was believing he was normal.
Jake Carter was so average you could say he was cursed. That’s what he’d always thought since the day his father abandoned him and his mother. Sure, you could call him pessimistic but he saw himself as realistic.
However, as Jake nears his sixteenth birthday his life takes an unexpected turn when his dreams become overrun by 'red eyed' demons that quickly pull him into a world of enticing evil.
This world held answers to questions Jake never knew existed, pain he never thought possible, beauty he never thought human, and a destiny he never thought imaginable.
Jake’s future is not a story that can be told easily but the people he would meet along the way and the memories he'd create would give him the courage he never knew he had. The courage to seek out the truth in a malicious world shrouded by lies.
Little does Jake know, he must first overcome a darkness inside himself that threatens to consume him at any moment and erase all that is his humanity.
After all....the shackles of fate are inescapable.
