After a violent encounter with a pastor in Dallas, Andrea Cormeaux and her daughter Elizabeth move to Andrea's hometown, Lake Charles, Louisiana, where the mother and daughter, as traiteurs, heal the afflicted. Stalking them from an ever-shortening distance, however, is the demon Uliel, who appears in the tall, spindly guise of a rival faith healer. As a precursor to the last days, Uliel leaves a trail of carnage across the South, burning churches and murdering pastors. Deacon Waymon Taylor, whose Crown of Thorns Baptist Church remains in ruins, must summon the faith to confront Uliel or allow more pastors, as well as the Cormeauxs, to die.
