The first entry in a bleak cyberpunk series no science fiction fan can afford to miss! By 4042 CE, the Hierophant and his Church have risen to political dominance with his cannibalistic army of genetically modified humans: martyrs. In an era when mankind's intergenerational cold wars against their long-lived predators seem close to running hot, the Holy Family is poised on the verge of complete planetary control. It will take a miracle to save humanity from extinction. It will also take a miracle to resurrect the wife of 331-year-old General Dominia di Mephitoli who defects during martyr year 1997 AL in search of Lazarus, the one man rumored to bring life to the dead. With the Hierophant's project Black Sun looming over her head, she has little choice but to believe this Lazarus is really all her new friends say he is - assuming he exists at all - and that these companions of hers are really able to help her. From the foulmouthed Japanese prostitute with a few secrets of her own to the outright sapient dog who seems to judge every move, they don't inspire a lot of confidence, but the General has to take the help she can get. After all, Dominia is no ordinary martyr. She is the Heirophant's daughter, and her Father won't let her switch sides without a fight. Not when she still has so much to learn... 1. Language: English.

Merrick Whyte is the psychonaut, mind reader, master of the gateways, and destroyer of worlds. He is also bereft of power, stolen by Aiwass, the dark demigod, for reasons which are far from clear. But Aiwass is explicit about the impending uncreation of the multiverse - an atrocity machinated by Orthon, a first-order demon. To avert this abomination, Merrick is tasked with seeking out the Dancer - an emissary of Orthon and member of a swelling infestation of adepts called the Enclave. This will prove to be just the start of a treacherous road.Merrick’s journey will lead him to worlds both bizarre and mind-unhinging. It will see demigods threaten those closest to him and the return of old enemies. It will be opposed by a fanatical group intent on destroying any adept possessing magical powers, including Merrick himself.Aided by the Outcasts and Hierophant allies, Merrick will seize objects of power and learn arcane invocations never before granted to mortals. But even these may not suffice. For, Orthon is always a step ahead, and no one has ever slain a demon before. Above all, a psychonaut can often be his own worst enemy.
