After a lifetime of adventures, Pierce Landcross and his wife, Taisia, have been enjoying their rest and peace in the In-Between. Yet, when the couple decides to rejoin the light of the mortal world, something goes terribly wrong. Pierce is unexpectedly yanked back to his old life! And not only is he sent back into his original body, but he discovers that this resurrection was orchestrated by none other than his very own physician, Dr. Duncan Hackett, who has been dubbed the Soul Thief for being able to steal spirits from the afterlife.
Pierce desperately wants to return to Taisia, but there are too many obstacles standing in his way, including a strange mind illness invading certain areas of England. With so much happening, Pierce struggles to get by one day at a time in the hopes that he and his love will be reunited once again.
