The world is a numinous place for those who have eyes to see it. Welcome to the Numinous World, where gods and angels intervene in the lives of mortals, and a band of eternal companions unite and reunite over the centuries, life after life. Theirs are eternal oaths, to the powers they serve and to one another. Through wars and dark ages, from the ancient Nile valley to the dawn of the 20th century, they must be true to themselves and to those they serve - no matter what the danger.
Seventeen enchanting short stories bring to life this rich tapestry, weaving in and out of history, dark and bright alike.
