When an enraged male ghoul escapes the faerie realms and begins on a rampage for Chicago, Mara and her friend, Officer Lee Moker, are the only ones who can stop the monster and save the humans from disaster. However, the ghoul has already taken a large bite out of Mara's shoulder and its venom is slowly rendering her immobile. The only hope for the people of Chicago rests in Mara's hands... and that hope could cost her her life.
