Deep in the heartland of America, at a thousand-year-old effigy mound in southern Ohio, an ancient coven of witches attempts to bring about Armageddon by awakening Lilith’s soul. Lilith is the first woman created by God, before the more compliant Eve, and the mother of all demons, often depicted as the Whore of Babylon riding the Beast in the Book of Revelations. Her soul resides in the body of twenty-year-old, Teresa Moore, who is unaware of her past and why Lilith’s voice lures her away from her Catholic upbringing. As Teresa gives birth to a daughter, the coven senses the arrival and sends its most cunning sister, Briana, to capture Teresa and awaken Lilith’s soul. Will Teresa learn about her past in time to stop Lilith’s rise and the onset of Armageddon?
The legend of Lilith’s creation and her choice to leave Eden rather than be subservient to Adam is woven throughout the story, giving voice to a character who while mentioned in every major religion was largely edited out of Christianity. Women’s rights groups, Wiccans, and Druids have championed her. Like dragons and the devil, she is an unexplainable yet integral part of our culture.
