Cassie appears to be a normal college girl.  Then one day, her friend Helene is killed in an accident and visits her as a ghost, telling her dark spirits are after her.  Cassie witnesses her friend's soul being dragged away to Perdition.  Her parents send her to an asylum where the ghost of Cassie's dead grandfather unleashes Cassie's gift to see monsters, and reveals to Cassie that there is a network of monsters in the world trying to steal souls for someone called the Adversary.
