They teeter on the edge of hell, the select priests who do the will of the angels...Reveal this secret to any other, and you can be sure that the angels themselves will ensure your death; and so each single priest named by the angels has been told before being entrusted with the horrifying responsibility.

These priests have made the lone journey to the Cleft, there to perform certain duties ... incantations to ensure that the spawn of angels and humans do not wreak havoc on earth.

Wynkyn de Worde has undertaken the journey from Rome to Nuremberg over one hundred times, but now the plague ravages Europe, and this time his health, too, fails. A visitation from the Archangel Michael ensures that another will follow Wynkyn, but in the decade between succession, will the godless fill the land ...
