Photojournalist Joseph James is saved from the jaws of a grizzly by an old man in the mountains of Montana. The man calls himself Truman Struck, and he seems relieved to meet Joseph. Truman has a story to tell, and who better to tell than a journalist? Back in Truman’s cabin, the story begins, and Joseph can hardly believe what he hears.

As a young man, Truman was sentenced to a Montana prison for driving under the influence. Because of his background in science, he is chosen to assist GED teacher Laura Whitherby. He enjoys working with Laura, but he is haunted both by strange dreams and by a building outside his barred window that used to be a slaughterhouse. Soon, with the help of Native American inmate Medicine Horse, Truman learns of an ancient prophecy that involves a link between Laura and himself.

Their ancestral histories intertwine, and together they have been chosen to fight a dark force known as I LIVE that hides beneath the nearby mountain. Supernatural foes stand in their way, though, as the Dark One seeks Truman’s death. How can two mere humans battle monsters of the spirit realm? The Prophecy holds the key, and journalist Joseph James is about to learn the true power of darkness.
