A serial killer is roaming the streets of Los Angeles. The police can't catch him; the FBI can't understand him; and nobody—including the 'voices'—can stop him.
In another part of the panicked city, a young mother struggles to keep her small family together. The problem is that forces, which humans can barely comprehend, are playing out dangerous actions that have been ordered from another plane of existence . . .
There, the life and death of a young child is just another violent step in the cascade of events, of evolution of the Soul.
Caught in the middle is a Guardian Angel, one of many, condemned to carry out the service of God in the darkest city . . . Purgatory. It is the place where all Souls wait, determining their final choice. They may choose the Grace of God, or they may cross the Torn Valley and enter the city of Hades—a bright place of sin and pleasure . . . and of Lucifer.
Whatever they choose, the path is forever. In Purgatory the Angels protect the evolved Souls as choices are being made. In Hades, Demons and Dark Angels are preparing for the final battle between Heaven and Hell, good against evil. And the outcome of this battle has not been foretold. In a series of twists and turns; unlikely heroes and unexpected alliances are formed that could spell the end for all humanity, and the beginning of Lucifer's reign.
Welcome to Purg: Where everything is nothingness . . . and nothing is what it seems . . .
