Every guy wants to meet the girl of his dreams. Jesse Jordan actually meets the girl who's FROM them. 20-year-old Jesse's t your average pizza delivery boy. He also makes piles of cash running money for the gambling ring his boss Angelo operates out the back door of the shop. Still, Jesse refuses to listen when the mysterious Taria-the same girl from those dreams-warns him that Angelo's racket is about to turn deadly. Soon Jesse wonders if Taria really can see the future. A series of strange-even terrifying-omens all seem to warn that his life is headed down a bloody path. Each day, and every moon-haunted night, brings new signs that the hand of fate has Jesse in its grip, and that there is escape. Finally the darkest of omens come true and Jesse's about to pay the ultimate price for Angelo. Only once Jesse's safe-or is he?-can he handle a truth far more dangerous than any bullet, the real truth about Taria and her magic?
