Heaven and Hell have always fought over the Mortal realm ever since its inception, but what if the Creator had a different plan? Who would then seize control of the world? When Alex Thorn, a meager college student, allows himself to be dragged to a party one night, he never expected to be plunged into a shrouded world where the most beautiful and terrifying creatures ever imaginable wage war with one purpose in mind: authority over the Mortal realm. Alex meets Ruth who turns out to be more than just a full of life, eccentrically dressed young woman. After saving him from a band of Demons, Ruth reveals that she is his Guardian Angel and that he is not just a student. With confirmation from one of four Archangels, Alex learns that he is the last living member of the Divine lineage of the Apostle Andrew, one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ. However, he is not the only Descendant left alive. Alex discovers that the Maker has left the known realms and has redefined the original plans for the Apocalypse. Revelation has now been given to the three realms, leaving the fate of the world up for grabs. So whether he is ready or not, Alex joins the Descendants in the hunt for four relics that are the keys to the End of Days.
