As the Hags sink further into sadism, hidden away in a little church across the Scald is a band of twelve survivors. Led by a famous physicist and his black cylinder called Angel, they rely on stealth and drones to hide from the Hags. But the drones reveal something seemingly impossible, and the twelve must risk everything to act. Their fate lies with Nik and Mari, whose lethal blade combat skills will be put to the ultimate test.
How can two take on thousands? By shaking the foundations of their faith.
