Meanwhile, with murder on their minds, the warriors of the light and dark assemble at a ruined temple where the Devi-to-be lies trance-bound. Only two people want Tara to live: a failed policeman, and a lapsed priest. Can they save her in spite of the overwhelming odds? And does a goddess need or want to be saved?
