Angel walks the line between two worlds; a vampire cursed with a soul, he’s spent centuries battling back the forces that would destroy humanity, in an attempt to redeem himself for the crimes committed by the monster he was when he was first turned. But now, when the trail of the most recent demonic uprising takes him to Sunnydale, he realizes that the redemption he seeks can only come at a startling price.

As Angel reunites with old friends and old spirits in Sunnydale, he comes face to face with a new demon — one set on destroying a generation that Angel is entirely unfamiliar with. Will Angel be able to adapt to this new kind of foe…or will he succumb to the demons of his dark and terrible past as Angelus?
