In a world haunted by the ghosts of men, where the roaming Created Ones refuse to battle in an ancient holy war, five intrepid brothers do the bidding of their priests in hopes of bringing an end to the Dark Age.
Kladius, groomed as a leader but inexperienced in the ways of battle, leads the brothers in a quest to find the Wheel within a Wheel, a sort of compass that the priests believe points to the Begotten Seraph.
Samuel, trained in the arts of combat, has learned the location of the Wheel from the Oracle Lokkje, also known as the Sly-One. In a fit of pique, Samuel has slain Lokkje, fulfilling his revenge for the Oracle’s taking their mother as a mistress. We join the five brothers on the verge of recovering the Wheel.
