An apocalyptic battle for godhood is raging in the rift between Iowa and the Abyss...
World War III isn’t over. America has been in rebuild mode since losing New York to a mysterious flood. The peace breaks as a sorcerer’s mutants ravage Iowa on a warpath into the Abyss. A fleet of enlarged praying mantises has invaded Des Moines, Iowa. Swarms of cicadas are turning survivors into winged soldiers. Orchestrating the warzone is a priestess of Order, who’s pursuing godhood, and the nation of followers who’ll get her there.
Caroline’s new friendship parts the veil between reality and myth, as a recruiter of Order needs her to hide him from capture. In their escape, the boss she’s loved like a father reveals his elevator into the Abyss.
In this new world, Caroline finds a usurped god and an angry ghost eager to make her their getaway back to power. What if the person her friends will need is heartbeats away from becoming the real threat? When the impossible becomes reality, what price will she pay to survive?
