When the volcano rumbles the barrier goes down that protects the human world from his dark and dangerous one.

While working at the Paladins’ headquarters, Barak, and his former foes form an uneasy alliance in order to bring down the saboteurs who would sell out the human world for the blue stones common to Barak’s domain. His new boss, Dr. Lacey Sebastian is sister to one of the Paladins and knows first hand how dangerous and ruthless these others can be. Yet that doesn’t seem to be the case with Barak who displays a sincere gentleness, and honorability that Lacey has never known with a human male. Her growing desire to be with him alienates her with her beloved brother, and puts Barak at risk as a target among his newfound colleagues.
