The Demon has been given a leave from hell. He's been using his limited time on earth to create a bloody trap for Sara Pezzini. Now, as the Demon's time runs out, the trap is sprung. Victims of the Witchblade's justice, long since vanquished to hell, return, intent on destroying Sara and dragging her soul back to the pits with them. Sara and the Witchblade must fight for themselves, and for a purely innocent soul: Sara's young daughter, Hope.
