QUOTE: "Then again, even with the scrolls, the Flash can't have any idea what he's stumbled onto. And by the time he does, it'll be too late for even him to do anything about it." —Charles Fontaine

SUMMARY: The bickering team of Wally West and Linda Park, struggling through a difficult time in their relationship, find themselves faced with overthrowing an evil plot of hellish proportions! The head of Royal Industries, Chairman Charles Fontaine, is preparing to use age-old demonic spells to raise a horrible beast, the Daemoniacus, for his secret society's own fiendish purposes. Only the cooperation of Wally and Linda—in addition to some chemical counterspell coupled with the Flash's newfound abilities for lending speed—will be able to stop a plan that could destroy the town of Harriston, Massachusetts.
