The Soul series follows the Last Angel, Ero, a nero of artifice, Sol, and the Hartsend family through the realms of Tsephanyah, Narayan and Abattoir in the aftermath of the Second Coming of Christ.
The Soul: Book One
Evil has flourished since the beginning of time, but at long last it has come to pass—that the world should end at the hands of the divine. A Lesser Earth thrives in the ashes of the old world.
As does an unnamed lost boy, the abandoned effigy of evil, who wanders the globe without a clue and without a purpose.
The Last Angel Ero’s only task is to find this boy and raise him into the arms of Grace. He doesn’t expect to question that purpose—and he certainly doesn’t expect to find an affinity with the evil inside the boy he names Sol.
It’s only when Ero begins to explore new truths that he realizes just what having faith in Sol may cost him: his life, his love and his soul.
Procession of Eternity: Book Two
The Last Angel Ero’s entire existence has hinged on a single moment—his ability to find and Raise the nero of artifice Sol into the ranks of espel that call Narayan home. It’s his only purpose in life. His only reason for being.
He never considered what he might do should he fail.
Sol is no stranger to being left to his own devices. He managed it for years before Ero ever showed up with promises to rid him of his birthright, the evil that makes him eat through already-destroyed cities, heartbeat by heartbeat. He has no problem taking care of himself.
Ero just does it better. So they stick together. He thinks it will be this way forever.
Until the change that’s supposed to happen… doesn’t.
Trapped between a newfound emptiness and Sol’s tireless influence, Ero finds himself relying on the physicality of Lesser Earth more and more with each day. It’s taxing, and it’s confusing, but most of all, it’s damning.
If a nero can Rise, an espel can Fall.
