Evil inhabits the tiny planet of Earth and the darkness is spreading … shortly before the Great Flood.
It has been many years since Utriel fell under the powers of the handsome, diabolical Asmodeus and conceived her son. For her weakness, she lost her family, her home, and Noah, the man she loved — a man of honor.
Now she and her friends are wanderers, crossing the vast, open plains to the blue sea beyond in their pursuit to fulfill their own destinies. Memories of the past only bring Utriel grief, pain, and guilt. Is there nothing she can do to atone for her sin? No hope for her future?
Prax-En, a stone mason whose people have lived by the Great Sea for centuries, has heard stories of the Placer of the Stars, but he wonders if they’re merely legends. After all, only the Ancient Keepers, who live separate from the people, follow the ways of Yah-Adon. Everyone else pursues wealth, pleasure, and power. Then Prax-En begins to have recurring dreams of an alien land and a monstrous statue of polished stones. What could his visions mean?
When Prax-En refuses to make a statue of Pontus, the power-hungry Chief Elder, Pontus hatches an evil scheme that will change everything about Prax-En’s life … and lead him on a journey he never would have imagined.
