While humanity trembles and death tolls soar, the gods and their supernatural allies continue fighting to stymie the ever-advancing Infernal hordes. Each divinity has staked their claim in certain locations to foster relations with the survivors there, be it a modest abbey or multinational empire. Dorian, the Ascended One, and his Alabaster Order have fought without pause for months to tip the delicate balance of peace and chaos ever so slightly in their favor, but it is Dorian’s champion, Nathaniel, who has made the greatest impact on both sides. Known throughout the world as a bringer of hope to the innocent and a foe to demons rivaling the gods themselves, Nathaniel has thrived under his master’s tutelage.
But as the already frenetic pace of demonic invasions accelerates further, no amount of hope or divine might will prepare Earth’s forces for what is about to blow the doors off on its way to total domination.
Dorian Benoit is no stranger to adversity, but even growing up gay wasn’t enough to prepare him for the troubles that his telekinetic powers would bring.
Not long after Dorian moves out on his own, an unnatural affliction starts to take hold of the locals, turning his chances at a new life into a hellish nightmare. He soon finds himself in a fight for survival against the ones responsible who have taken an interest in using his powers to further their sinister cause. A world unseen by mortal eyes for centuries is about to make its cataclysmic return with Dorian caught in the middle.
The Immortal Coil series is a high-stakes journey of self-discovery as Dorian Benoit ascends from reluctant hero to demon-slaying savior. Inspired by mythology and folklore, it explores the familiar tones of urban fantasy to the unfathomable reaches of cosmic horror with a character-driven storyline that abolishes token stereotypes. Each sequel ups the ante as a diverse supernatural cast struggles to contain the apocalyptic events set in motion by the mysterious entities attempting to unravel modern civilization and beyond.
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
