"They knew us before we began to walk upright. Shamans called them guardians, mythmakers called them tricksters, pagans called them gods, churchmen called them demons, folklorists called them shape-shifters. Throughout time, they've played many roles and accepted in return whatever we thought was their due: love, hate, fear, worship, condemnation, neglect, oblivion." "Even in modern times, when their existence is doubted or denied, they continue to extend invitations to those who would travel a different road, a road not found on any of our cultural maps. But something is different now. Perceiving us as a threat to life itself, these "others" have begun issuing their invitations with a darker purpose." In this metaphysical thriller, four people place themselves in the hands of these all but forgotten Others. Venturing on a road that leads across a sinister American landscape hidden from normal view, they find their way to interlocking destinies of death, terror, transcendental rapture, and shattering enlightenment.
