God is long dead, and seven remaining fallen angels carry on their eternal battle through human agents. Now while the Great War rages in Europe, David Lydyard must embark on his final supernatural quest.
Anatole, a French soldier miraculously rescued from death in the trenches by Jeanne d'Arc, brings Lydyard a strange message from the angels' sphere of existence. Pitted one final time against his occult rival Jacob Harkender and the Werewolves of London, Lydyard is humanity's last chance to penetrate the natrue of the angels.
But as the carnage of World War I engulfs the globe the apocalyptic consequences of the angels' interference in human affairs threaten the very nature of space and time.
