Welcome to the Otherworld, where nightmarish creatures reign supreme.

Five hundred years ago, Jack made a deal with the devil, thus condemning himself to an eternity of servitude. As a Lantern, his sole duty is to guard one of the many portals that lead to the immortal realm, making sure that no souls stray where they are not welcome. It's a job that Jack excels at - until he meets the beautiful Ember O'Dare.

Seventeen-year-old witch Ember has been trying to trick Jack into letting her through the portal for years. Stubborn and undeterred by his warnings, she finally manages to cross into the forbidden plane with the help of a mysterious and debonair vampire - and so the wild chase through a dazzling, dangerous world begins.

Can Jack get Ember back where she belongs before both the worlds, both earthly and supernatural, descend into chaos?
