During a ten-day period, the Gate Sealeras door begins to deteriorate, letting a race of monsters called the Daitors through to the human world to once again rule. The only family with the bloodline to reseal the door is the Somerson family. And charged with protecting the chosen Gate Sealer is the Akeyian family. Hanna Akeyian is a Protector bound by family tradition to guard and serve the Gate Sealer, Drake Somerson, until the tenth day has passed, but thatas easier said than done with Drakeas carefree antics leaving Hanna to clean up his messes. And that was before the ten-day deterioration began, and during it will be her greatest trial yet.
