Cassandra: Warrior Angel expands Third Eye’s story by delving into the mystery surrounding Cassandra’s family and her ability to see creatures from different realms. Set against the backdrop of angels and demons, the show also tackles the ancient battle between good and evil and the role that men played in this near apocalyptic war. Rife with allusions from the bible and several literature, Cassandra: Warrior Angel promises not to be just an enjoyable series, but an educational one as well guaranteed to entertain the whole family.
