Lux Augustina is on a journey across the Abyss, for years he had suffered at the hands of his family and peers, raped of innocence, crushed and cast out, he should have died; yet did not. Deep down he summons the courage to fight back, to better himself and learn and become ever more powerful.
That journey led him to San Fransisco to the Temple of Set, where he, for a short time, was happy, until Christian Fundamentalists burned down their temple and the Reverend Iziah P. Dollar murders his fraternity.
Lux summons the darkest forces to exact a revenge so terrible, that it becomes an Apocalypse, laying waste to the North American continent.
This is just the beginning of a very personal war between Lux Augustina and the Reverend Iziah P. Dollar.
