The powerful Lord Sargatanas, Brigadier-general in Beelzebub's host, is restless. For millennia Sargatanas has ruled dutifully over an Infernal metropolis, but he has never forgotten what he lost in the Fall. He is sickened by what he has done and what he has become. Now, with a small event - a confrontation with a damned soul - he makes a decision that will reverberate through every being in Hell.
Sargatanas has Ascended and the doomed, anguished souls have found themselves emancipated. Hell has changed...hasn’t it? The demons, wardens of the souls, are free of their inmates....And the damned, liberated from their terrible torments, twisted and bent but thankful that they are no longer forced to be in proximity to their fearsome jailors, rejoice. But something is stirring under the surface of hell’s ceaseless carnage...and into this terrible landscape come three entities.
