Description

Lucifer's war, the war in heaven, which damned legions of angels to Hell, is an ancient and bitter memory shrouded in the smoke and ash of the Inferno. The Fallen, those banished demons who will evermore suffer the vast wrath of Heaven, have established a limitless and oppressive kingdom within the fiery confines of Hell.The Demons Major, Heaven's former warrior-seraphim, are the ruling class. They are the equivalent of landed lords, each owing allegiance to the de facto ruler of Hell, the horrific Prince Beelzebub, the Lord of the Flies - Lucifer, once the greatest of heaven's angels, has not been seen since the Fall. They reign over their fiefdoms, tormenting the damned souls and adding to their wealth and power ... and anguish.There is one Demon Major, however, who has not forgotten his former life in Heaven. The powerful Lord Sargatanas, a brigadier general in Beelzebub's host, is restless. For millennia Sargatanas has ruled dutifully but unenthusiastically, building his city, Adamantinarx, into the model of Infernal metropolises. But he has never forgotten what he lost in the Fall - proximity to the Divine, the knowledge of Heaven's everlasting treasury of joy. He is sickened by what he has done and what he has become. Now, with a small event - a confrontation with one of the damned souls - he makes a decision that will reverberate through every being in Hell.Sargatanas decides to attempt the impossible, to rebel, to win his way Home and bring with him anyone who chooses to follow ... be they demon or soul.He will stake everything on fighting all the abominable forces of Hell arrayed against him, the prize ... nothing less than redemption.
