Kip Livingston lives alone in Abasteron House on Horn Island, Rhode Island, and is a talented painter with an inspired imagination. But she is haunted by a dark nocturnal visitor. Each night while Kip sleeps, a winged creature with greedy teeth invades her dreams and drags her to the bottom of a ghost-grey sea. For help, she turns to exiled priest Raymond Kera, who falls for her seductive charms.
Can Raymond save her from this dream demon? Or will Kip have to save herself?
