The devil always finds work for idle hands - especially when their labors serve to further his aims. Now that he has a universe of his own to look after, Lucifer Morningstar has plenty of work to go around - and he muse delegate at least some of the tasks to those more expendable than himself. Accoringly, he has secured a ship and a crew to discharge one of his last responsibilities in this old Creation - freeing the soul of the half-angel Elaine Belloc form torment in the mapless realm between Heaven and Hell known as the Mansions of Silence.
But while the Naglfar - a ship made from dead men's fingernails - and her hands fight their way through the borderlands of eternity, Lucifer is preparing to finally open the eyes of his angelic brethren to the mind - and the plans - of their Creator.
Because the Lightbringer now knows where the thoughts of God have pooled.
