Author Craig Wickersham begins a trilogy with a dark secret in “The Door.” Luci Comburet is a trailer park teen who finds herself targeted by a cult of religious fanatics who want to kill her because they think she is half human, half angel.

Luci, whose mother died when she was a baby and never knew her father, is suddenly alone. Her grandmother has passed, and she must live with an estranged uncle. One night, in her new bedroom, Luci hears a strange man's voice. Later, she finds an ancient relic hidden inside an old dresser. It is a small black door carved with mysterious angels and a two-headed snake. After touching the snake, Luci awakens with the man's voice inside her head, and he warns her to flee.

“The universal story structure contains the hero’s journey,” said Wickersham. “The elements that we include in our stories reveal how we see the world, where we grew up, and what our culture has taught us.”

Fearful and confused, Luci barely escapes a deadly fire and finds herself on the run from a killer cult that will not stop hunting. The unwanted chase leads her into the world of those who could save her from the cult, but when they come across the door, Luci quickly discovers they have their own agenda.
