Obsidian - a colour as dark as the never-ending abyss in the shadowy realms of the Underworld, the colour of Clara Avery's tresses, and the inevitable shade of the future that will descend upon her.
Clara Avery: perceptive, intelligent, and above all, human.
Three words that describe the girl to a T, and yet amidst the dying flames of her ruined car, the few boxes of her personal belongings, and her relentless bad luck, Clara has something far more valuable than even she knows - her soul.
Catastrophe and trouble turns her life inside out when she makes a regrettable deal with a demon; one that ends with her being kidnapped only to awake in the Underworld. As fate would have it, it is there that she will find the truth behind the strange occurrences in her life, and her relationship with the demon in question.
In a world where supernatural beings exist, how will Clara react to the sudden revelation of her fate? Who is she exactly, and what is her role in the events that unfold before her?
