The city of Templar has always been a little strange. Monsters slither out of the lakes, a zombie rises up every few years, and from time to time, some of the people go missing for no reason. But the supernatural occurrences have been happening more and more frequently lately, and it may have something to do with the all-powerful demon that’s living in Mrs. Grunberg’s basement. When local slackers Simon Dark and Virgil Matter decide to investigate the mysterious presence in the cellar, they set off a chain of events that will change Templar—and themselves—forever. They don’t know anything about demons. They don’t know anything about magic. But they know that Templar needs some heroes to fight against the growing supernatural darkness, and with the help of a sharp, attractive empath and an old, cantankerous wizard, they just might be able to send the evil demon back to hell. Or they’ll be blinked out of existence trying.
