Chicago, 1927. The Coven of the Djinn, a race of beings that are neither human nor spirit, find out that a realm containing evil spirits has reopened. ~~~~ Nadine Shaw has always been an outcast amongst the Djinn for her strange ability to read people's emotions and desires. Though the daughter of a Shamaness, she's never felt needed in the Coven. That is, until the realms trapping ancient and evil spirits is broken, unleashing the Ghouls, which can possess humans and feed off their souls. The Coven wants to pacify the spirits by letting them return to their place in society, wreaking havoc on the human world and tricking them into temptation. But when Nadine meets Jim Slater, a halfbreed sailor who wants to protect his human mother at all costs, they form another idea. If they can find out what the Ghouls are up to, they can stop them for good. As they venture into the darkest parts of Chicago, the cost of their personal demons are quickly catching up with them, and sooner or later, they will have to pay.
