She is resurrected and gets caught up in a battle between heaven and hell.

This causes some tension between Ava and the older, more traditional members of her group, Order of the Cruciform Sword.

With great power comes great responsibility, and Ava must juggle her role as a warrior with her life as a teenager.

That's easier said than done of course, will she manage to strike a balance and defeat the supernatural?
