As their relationship unfolds, they're both caught off-guard by the discoveries - both hilarious and heartwarming - that they make about each other and about themselves.

Worst of all, the people around him are ... changing. Once-ordinary humans are becoming embodiments of their darkest desires, manifestations of their deepest fears. Packs of pale, crouched figures stalk the subways, glowing child-faces peer out of the shadows ... and monsters prowl Times Square. And Cal Griffin is not the only one who will be forced into a strange new role in this brave new world of nightmare and wonder. An elevator mechanic turned huntress, a refugee doctor from Chernobyl, and a visionary street wizard all share a staggering responsibility with the young attorney to make sense of the senseless-and to follow an awesome destiny.
