Overview


This leather-bound book features 200 pages of riveting artwork in a post-apocalyptic heaven, where angels battle over “harvested souls” in the Purgatory Wars. Sebastian finds himself drafted into an eternal battle for human souls that has destroyed both heaven and hell. Reunited with his long lost brother, Gideon, Sebastian must help lead a revolution to regain their family’s power, but their ill-fated rebellion casts them to Earth as fallen angels. Sebastian must face his brother, before Gideon destroys the Earth. Akin to the visual styling of The Matrix, Underworld, 300, and Gladiator, Ascend is the tragic love story of a young couple, Sebastian and Rebeka, caught in a struggle between brothers. The 9" x 13" art book includes original story and research notes, full leather cover, silver foiled embossing, vellum lead sheet, and slipcover case.
