At the age of 14, William is convinced that men are untrustworthy. His dad abandoned his mother for another woman and no other men stepped into the void. As William's loneliness and lack of trust push his faith in Christ to the breaking point, he awakens to find that he, and many of the people he knows, have been transported to a mysterious forest—complete with beasts who would like nothing better than to lead William astray spiritually.One particular beast has a hold over William as he wavers between faith in Christ and his own survival instincts. How could he trust a God who allowed him to feel so abandoned? As the beast beckons William, he makes promises of security—tapping into William's biggest weakness. William learns that this new world he has entered is much like the real world he left behind. He can either embrace the evil that calls out to him or he can follow a God who might not care about him.
As William and the people who were transported with him journey toward the light, and ultimately Christ, the forces of darkness band together to stand in the gap and capture his soul. With William standing on the edge of eternity, one single act changes everything, pushing him over the edge.
