"There is but one God. And his Shadow..."

CONSECRATION is the story of Grace, an accomplished ophthalmologist in London, who is summoned to Mount Saviour Convent deep in the Scottish Highlands following the sudden and mysterious death of her brother who was a priest. Refusing to believe the convent's insistence that he committed `suicide,' and determined to discover what really happened to him, Grace starts her own investigation into her brother's death as the nuns prepare a consecration ceremony to purify the holy site. In doing so, she inadvertently shines a light on something far more disturbing, which relates to the forgotten years of her own childhood, intertwined with that of the holy order of the convent and the secret it's charged with protecting.

As much as her investigation draws her there, Grace feels as though Mount Saviour is drawing her in and closing its arms around her. The convent lies under the shadow of an ancient church's ruins, the convent's predecessor, which gaze out onto the grey and boundless Atlantic coastline. Wormlike markings are etched around the crucifixes on the cold stone walls, which once encased a relic.

Exploring the convent's sepulchral cloisters, and the wild cliffs and windswept beaches nearby, Grace is plagued by violent visions unmoored from time and reality. This place awakens traumatic memories of her father's crazed intent to punish his family for an evil he saw in Grace. As she nears the truth, hidden in the cryptic notes of her brother's journal, a Shadow from a dormant age begins to claw out for her. Grace's journey of self-discovery propels her to horrifying depths, the true nature of who she is unravelling before her, along with her psyche. All the while, the convent closes ranks about her.
