Through America's Civil War and into the distant future...
Two ancient gods have made romance and waged war...
After the Great Rapture...
Will Sky Parlor become their final battlefield?
Do we ever really die? Or, do we return to live again with those we knew before? In the future, will man and machine learn to procreate? For generations, the population of Sky Parlor has believed that, long ago, the lands beyond their domed city were made uninhabitable by the "Great Rapture".
When young Desmond Starr is appointed Alderman for Sky Parlor's borough of Columbia, he is guided by a benevolent spirit during a dream's strange vision and learns a hidden truth, exposing a shocking lie that has persisted for centuries. As rumors of a vast deception spread among Sky Parlor's population, the president and his governing "sustainability" council propose what appears to be the perfect but distracting solution: An inspiring journey to a mysterious and distant world!
But does this grand proposal mask an ulterior agenda? Will a rebellious young man discover his own fate is bound not only to Sky Parlor, but to the survival of humanity?
