Bodies falling from the sky, a serial killer on the loose, and endless bureaucracy.

Winter quarter has begun at Miskatonic University.

Ellen Logan wants nothing more than to join the school's "special program", but the administration refuses to admit her. That's not her only problem. She has a jealous boyfriend and a charismatic celebrity who's stalking her. A man who claims he's a demon from another world.

When her friend is kidnapped, Ellen once again teams up with Professor Andrew Carter. Their investigations lead them to the site of a mysterious plane crash and an encounter that plunges her into the Dreamlands. With the help of new allies, Ellen must find a way to return to the real world where her friend's life hangs in the balance.
