At the start of it all, Christian is just like anyone else looking for excuses not to write his novel. But when a powerful woman takes an unholy interest in his work, his life and his destiny change forever.
Meanwhile, from countless afterlife lounges, a capricious, lazy and gravy-stained individual is watching. From a darker place, a cross-dressing alpha autocrat is watching, too. Between them they will tear Christian apart.
Accompanied by a faithful fraction of someone he will never meet and almost all of a stranger he just can’t shake, Christian embarks on a disturbing supernatural journey of discovery and survival.
