The second coming of Jesus Christ was scheduled to occur around 1000 AD—but it did not happen as foretold. In the year 1016, the long-lived thirteenth apostle, set off as planned with twelve parchment scrolls inscribed by the apostles, believing that when they were read at Glastonbury Tor, history would be rewritten and the world would be restored to the glorious state originally envisioned by God. But the other ancient clans of Amaranthines know that if the scrolls are ever put to use, they and their families will disappear, as if they had never existed. What is the price they—and the rest of humanity—will pay for postponing Armageddon?
