Azgaroth and Ariel cannot help them on their task. Melinda and Gabe must keep their wits about them as they negotiate their way into the very center of hell and break the unbreakable chains of darkness that bind Daniel. But that's nothing compared to how they are going to get out again...and Melinda uncovers a startling power within her that could change the course of events for everyone.
