84% of the world claims a God fearing religion. Turns out, they're right to be afraid. The legions of Heaven have decided that we aren't exactly what they planned and want to start over. Unfortunately for us, they need a clean slate. Ariel Holmes' only care in a crumbling world is surviving, slinking through shadows and blending in with the still world around him. The haunting screams and burning buildings turn to white noise and he grows content. Until he's captured by a group of rowdy Revolutionists who give him little choice in his future. His stay is violent and grim with little food and even less sleep. A light streams into his world when a deaf bibliophile befriends him and he remembers what warmth feels like. Ariel struggles with the decision of enjoying his time with Cecilia and transitioning like the rest of the world or spending the inevitable little time he has left waging war. Maybe it's a lost cause, maybe it will prove to be his only choice.
