Knowledge has always been the enemy of faith.
They said that the first generation of man was brought
low by its appetites: for knowledge, for power, for
wealth. They said mankind’s voracity was so great, the
Lord sent his own Daughter to bring fire and devastation
to the world.
The survivors were few, but over the course of centuries
they banded together to form a new civilization—the
Descendancy—founded on the belief that the mistakes of
the past must never be repeated.
Brothers Clive and Clover Hamill, the sons of a well-
respected Descendant minister, have spent their lives
spreading that gospel. But when their traveling ministry
discovers a community intent on rediscovering the
blasphemous technologies of the past, a chain of events
will be set in motion that will pit city against city…and
brother against brother.
Along with Gemma Poplin, Clive’s childhood sweetheart,
and Paz Dedios, a revolutionary who dreams of
overthrowing the Descendancy, Clive and Clover will each
play a pivotal role in determining the outcome of this
holy war, and the fate of humanity itself.
