|Plot Summary of From the Dark Places|
Kate, a young widow with a small daughter, discovers that entities from another dimension (and the cult that worships them) are trying to destroy her and her child, as well as prevent the conception of her future child, destined to become a great fighter on the side of good. Kate must accept and develop her latent psychic talents, allow her daughter to do the same, and realize that the universe is stranger and more dangerous than she ever believed.
