While researching a college term paper on Promethea, a centuries-old mystical-warrior woman, Sophie Bangs was magically transformed into the latest living embodiment of the legendary heroine. In the fantasy-filled fourth volume of this critically acclaimed and award-winning series, Sophie continues her journey through the higher realms of existence where she encounters the Tree of Life and witnesses the Big Bang. Barely surviving her spiritual excursion, the teenaged hero returns to the mortal plane and discovers that her troubles have just begun as she finds herself in a deadly duel with her best friend over the mantle of Promethea. SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.
