Seven gods, seven moons, seven tribes, and one planet.
Each moon orbiting the planet Chancel is the sovereign domain of one of the gods, and when a human dies on the planet, they are resurrected into lunar life on the moon of their tribe’s deity.
For Rin’za, an initiate oracle of a time-scrying agency, life on Chancel is peaceful and predictable. Then he receives a prophecy that a child sacrifice from millennia ago will return to Chancel with a warning that Mukjal, the god of death, is plotting an attack that will claim both the first and lunar lives of all Chancelites.
To thwart the plans of the bloodthirsty god, Rin’za and a party of unlikely heroes must find the child and travel to Mukjal’s hellish moon, Scab, to find proof of the plot. Can twin warrior-priestesses, one disfigurer, a dead child, and an initiate oracle survive the horrors of the death god’s realm? If they bring back evidence can they convince the bickering tribes of Chancel to unite against an unprecedented threat?
