A mysterious flower sprouts in a paradise of superstition.
Abel Carraway investigates this prophesied harbinger of doom and realizes there is a scheme underneath the exotic politics.
He will discover an unexpected connection to his friend, Carmine Lassiter. An event of supernatural terror will force them both to face their greatest mystery, their own natures. If they don't find an answer, a divine power may usher in the apocalypse.
In a world where desires and fears can conjure the ghosts of eels and lambs, Recumon's literary stories lace into a lyrical web of the paranormal and the psychological that forms a mosaic of the human condition.
