In the divine struggle between good and evil, humans are hardly noticeable to the mal'akhim, but when an ancient seal is broken on the grounds of a California college campus, beings from dimensions beyond the balance of holy and unholy erupt from the earth. A retired priest and an ailing magickian must trust the mysterious Walker Between the Worlds and his skin-eating demon familiar as they step through Heisenbergian passages of probability and battle forces that are so far beyond demon they cannot be fully seen in earthly dimensions. Amidst the earthquakes and interdimensional intruders, the students and staff of California Hills University step across the boundaries of their knowledge and faith, revealing their true natures as the night erupts in earth and blood.

Construction workers at California Hills University uncover a graveyard of human bones. After the police remove a sacred seal from the grave site, giant serpents from the void of heaven and hell burst through the earth, terrorizing the campus. Christian "magickian" Jack Langthorn and his partner, professor and retired priest Andy Markham, are joined by the mysterious Walker Between the Worlds and the demon Amon as they try to figure out where the serpents come from and how to stop them from bringing about the apocalypse. Meanwhile, irritatingly obtuse students rally together to kill the monsters. While Pagliassotti clearly knows a lot about Christian mysticism, the mythology of the book remains unclear. Add an excess of unnecessary and sometimes unlikable characters, and what would have otherwise been an engaging story becomes too convoluted to enjoy. (Jan.)
