Of another time and place, WILLSTORM-Quest for Union chronicles the lives of the thousands of worshippers aboard the wandering temple dome, the Carnate of Mygda. Ruled by a council of 12 prelates, the mobile temple dome rumbles like a massive tank across the countryside in its age-old search for Union, a final, undefined, mystical merging with the godhead known only as Mygda.
Bral, the acolyte of Yano, Primate of the Wardens of Disaster, has known the temple since the earliest days of his youth when the temple was temporarily landlocked in a narrow gorge at the edge of his village. Now at young manhood, Bral strives to quiet the religious doubts which rage within him as he also struggles first to save a young woman being offered as sacrifice to the godhead, Mygda, and eventually to defend himself against charges of blasphemy and sacrilege. Found guilty, he is sentenced to a deathwalk, leading the temple across the arid plains until he falls beneath its tractor drives.
Strange powers in the Orb of Union, the glowing artifact which dates from the earliest history of Mygda, endows Ikol, an itinerant huckster and thief, with the divine power of Mygda. Ikol becomes an anointed one and assumes control of the ruling council as the 13th Primate, the Warden of Willstorm. He will unleash the Great Calamity which is foretold as the preface to the event of Final Union.
Amid the violence and religious fanaticism, the love between Bral and Pylar struggles to express itself. Religious faith must be renewed or abandoned, and either course tested in battle.
Both a prequel and a sequel to WILLSTORM are in work.
