Since the beginning of time, the world of humans and the world of angels have run parallel but apart, connected only by a single tunnel of light.
Humans know the tunnel as the passageway that lifts their souls after death. Angels know it as the Birthing Ring: the tunnel that delivers souls into the tiny bodies of newborn babies.
But the recent discovery of quantum computing has disrupted this age-old balance. As scientists perfect this technology in tiny “Q-chips,” they are inadvertently opening a second passage between the world of humans and the world of angelic species. But unlike the first passageway, this new portal is forming deep in territory controlled by dark sinister angels.
Any day now, scientists will install this new quantum-powered chip into a robot so smart, so life-like, so close to human consciousness, that just like a human baby, it too will require a soul.
Unbeknownst to the scientists, the exact moment the quantum robot is switched on, the new portal will open and allow the darkest of all angels to rush down and become the robot’s missing soul. This ensouled robot will be the first of many. An unstable force of possessed robots, until…
A confused teenager discovers that she’s the only one who can stop dark souls from penetrating the human realm.
But who will believe her?
