When Edward McTaggart, Seer and Knight Magus of the Church, absconds from his cell in Italy, he carries with him the memory of a horrid vision and the stain of its evil upon his soul. He flees, not knowing whom to trust, following only the shining light of purity he can feel tugging at his marrow, desperate to hide even from the sanctity of the Holy See. What he carries in his heart is terror, and what mars his spirit is black with rot; a rot even the Church cannot heal. But perhaps a Witch can.

*****

Aoife Bathory has cared for her adopted brother for almost as long as she can remember, and hunted her Father for even longer than that. The half-Fae, half-Witch product of a villainous ritual, she has dedicated her life to undoing what she believes is the sin of her making. So when a man throws himself at her feet begging for help, it doesn't matter to Aoife at all that he's a member of the dreaded Church, who for so long has persecuted people like her. One look at the strange stain upon his soul, Aoife knows she has to involve her brother, even though he isn't going to like it.

*****

When his sister and a dying Magus show up on his doorstep, Byron Bathory is terrified. He fears the Church has found him at last, has come to claim his life for the supposed sin of being a Witch. But he cannot turn away from Edward's suffering, and more...he recognizes it as something from his past. Something he'd hoped never to see again. So he decides to help Edward, knowing it will bring the Templars--and his worst fears--down upon him.

*****

Jude Shepard has killed demons for ten years, so when he is summoned before the Lords of War, he is surprised to learn that his mission involves none. He is to track down an escaped member of the Knights Magi and determine what caused him to run. There is evidence he has been compromised, his heart and magick twisted by darkness, and who better to find him than the best Templar in an age? What Jude finds, however, is far more than a runaway Magus, and almost none of it means what he thinks it does. And worse, his only allies may be the very people he has been trained to hunt.

*****

For the good of existence, Byron, Aoife, and Jude will have to unite. But what will they do when the evidence leads them to suspect one another?
