Imagine losing the one you love, only to find that everything you believed about them was a lie. That’s what happens to Cavalry Office Lucas Wilson, as he watches his wife Elizabeth murdered before his very eyes, just moments before he’s hanged by his corrupt commanding officer Nathaniel Monroe.
Offered a chance to redeem his broken soul by the Reaper Jemma, Lucas is recruited by Charon the Ferryman, otherwise known as Death to reap souls for him, on the condition that once he’s finished, Lucas can join his wife in Heaven. And for a hundred years, Lucas does this – working in a race against time to gather souls for Heaven before Charon’s ancient enemy Cerberus and her demonic Rogues can drag them to Hell.
However, a century later, Lucas finds himself facing his long-dead wife, now reincarnated into a new body – Faith Jones. Realising that everything they’ve been told is a fallacy, Lucas and Jemma go against their orders, saving Faith and starting a journey to learn the real story behind Charon and Cerberus, one that not only reveals the true about them, but more importantly the truth as to where souls really go when they’re claimed.
Hunted by Charon’s psychotic Thade and the re-animated Nathaniel Monroe, Lucas, Jemma and Faith must place their lives in the hands of long believed dead allies, chivalrous knights and traitorous friends as they try to find a way to not only stop Charon and Cerberus, be to save every soul ever taken by them.
