Fourteen hundred years after the millennial reign of the King has ended, the world still lives in relative peace and safety but has strayed from the principles that led to humankind\'s greatest era: the Great Generation. The principal system of faith, Royalism--once a global theocracy under the King--has degenerated into a politically oriented belief system. In response to the growing threat to their beliefs, factions of the Royalist Social Movement, from the violent to the reformist, seek to restore the former glory of the Great Generation.
High above Terra, connected to the planet by a system of orbital tethers stretching from the surface to sixty-four thousand kilometers in space, the civilian space station City of Heaven is home to more than a million citizens. A futuristic Tower of Babel, City of Heaven is humankind\'s greatest achievement.
Enter the Ar'chay Order, a radical sect of Royalism determined to force the royalist movement, and the world, to bend its knee, with Ar'chaists assuming the Regency. In a single act of terror, they sever the tethers connecting City of Heaven, killing nearly all of its inhabitants and sending the city on a collision course with Terra, where millions more will surely die.
On both Terra and the remains of City of Heaven, survivors battle for control and the polifaith movement reaches a crisis that threatens to unleash a new global era of faith-cleansing that will rid the world of Royalism once and for all.
