____SYNOPSIS_____ The Transcendence, a powerful “spell” that will take all the souls of mankind into the New World, is the ultimate goal of the world’s only religious organization: The Scions of the god Mecinter. A novice priest named Marten, adopted by the High Priest, is nearing his indoctrination into a full-fledged member of the organization. Marten, a young priest, is sent away from the organization after an accident that kills his father. Amid the discovery that the Scions and the Transcendence are not all that they seem, he must decide whether to do his priestly duty and march mankind toward the Transcendence or toward truth, all the while wondering if they are one in the same.
