In the Dark Ages, an evil wizard created another world, a dimension encased in ice. Within this world, the wizard’s apprentice, The Presence, grew more powerful with each human he killed. The Presence grew to be such a formidable, dangerous force that he became a common enemy to both the angels in heaven and the devils in hell. Now, the angels and devils wish to join forces. They plan to exterminate The Presence – but only a being of flesh and blood can pass through the ice that encases his dimension. The angels and devils select a human from earth. Her name is Alison – and she will be sent through the ice to assassinate The Presence.
