Between the California desert towns of Palmetto and Nitro lurks an evil that is more powerful, more terrifying than anyone can possibly imagine. But there is no need to imagine it, for several of the townspeople will experience it firsthand. For it is here that the primordial demon, Lamia, makes herself known. She appears for the first time in 1980, and before she's done, Palmetto will be a burned-out shell of a town, most of its tenants seemingly vaporized in a catastrophic fire. Only a handful will survive the encounter all teenagers at the time but survival is not enough. For they have committed a deed so heinous, so utterly shocking, that it will haunt them for the rest of their lives. And Lamia is neither gone nor defeated, only subdued. The survivors have taken something from her. And she will stop at nothing to get it back.

Twenty yearslater,Lamia calls to them. It starts with a dead body left on the stairs of a church. Then come the nightmare visions that are all too real. The survivors know there will be no escape, that they must return to the burned-out ruins of Palmetto to confront and destroy the most frightening force imaginable. They know their chances of success are miniscule, that it would be wiser to run and try to escape. But they can't. Despite their best efforts to resist, they are powerless not to come when she calls.

And where, in a cavern in a place called No Man's Land, something has been waiting a long time for those who stole something more precious than life itself.
