The Aspect of Death, one of the most powerful of the Primal forces of our world, has gone missing and has been succeeded by his far-less-powerful second, the enigmatic Director of Death, Incorporated. Without the Aspect of Death to defend his dominion, it may fall prey to more opportunistic Aspects. The last time this happened, the Black Plague was unleashed and set the Second Worlds afire with war...

Meanwhile, an army gathers at the borders of the Realms between Earth and Avalon, the Selig and Ur-Selig Courts have reluctantly joined forces in an effort to return to Earth. Having been banished by the Compact, a divine restriction created nearly fifteen hundred years ago that banished the Cold Gods and their allies, the Selig Court, from the Realms of Man. Now under attack from a new enemy, the Cold Gods, and the Selig Courts are forced to retreat to Earth as their Realm falls to an unstoppable force...

The Angels of the White Host, who have been content with the status quo for the last thousand years, have been preparing for the prophesized Last War of Revelations. They are massing their armies, secretly, awaiting the signs that would reveal the Beast, called the Whore of Babylon.

She was the Aspect of Destruction, Tiamat, imprisoned by the Babylonians five thousand years ago, whose chains were being broken by a supercomputer at MIT...

Wow I loved this chapter. A very powerful beginning to an epic story I am sure! The images provoked in the reader and the teasingly fascinating style and tone bodes well for me to keep reading this! A great story awaits me!!!! Exciting!

Very original and interesting. Just read the prologue and I have to say your imagination is phenomenal. I will come back to read more later on. But awesome job so far.
