Every kid is afraid that a monster lives in his closet, but for Devon March, the monsters are all too real.

Yet his powers, and the demons in his closet, remain for him unexplained mysteries.

There he learns that he a sorcerer of the Order of the Nightwing, a 3,000 year old tradition of mysticism and magic that fascinates Devon with its fabled history.
