A novel by Charles Kormos
What if a coven took over a hospital? Not the usual witches but aswang from Asia. They serve the demon Tikbalang on his quest to open the gates of the Abyss so Chaos will reign over humanity. After his wife's death, Chet returns to his job as an ICU nurse to fill the hollowness in his heart by keeping busy. He and his friend Lydia become trapped in Tikbalang's plan. To save themselves and everyone in the hospital, they embark on a counterplan to overcome the demon and coven. Chet goes man to man against Tikbalang incarnate in the body of a priest. Lydia takes on the aswang queen and the hurricane she's summoned. At their respective climactic moments, it is Chet and Lydia's compassion that enables them to make the right choice and win thereby proving that the human element of compassion is stronger than any powers of evil.
