Min Meyer is not the typical thirty-two year old single woman. In fact, the only truth to that sentence is that she is single. Min was once called Need -- the Essence of Need. A spiritual body that governed and guided that aspect of the human soul. And she is not really thirty-two, rather an indeterminable age from when the species of man first roamed the earth. Silas Blake is a divorced, normal man in his mid-thirties. And Min's new boss. He allowed a woman to control his heart once before, but his ex-wife never had the alluring power of his newest employee. Add in six, precocious teenage girls, one meddling group of Essences, and the fate of a child that will save the world. Some things just can't be left up to chance.
