Adam and Eve have spent their lives protecting each other. Now they must fight not only for themselves but for the whole of humanity…
Deep beneath the ground in the HQ of the organisation that has dogged them for decades, Adam and Eve learn their lifelong enemy is no longer their greatest threat.
The true purpose of the mysterious room that created the twins is revealed, and it seems the only way to stop their new adversary, Pandora, before her plan comes to fruition, may be to take the life of an innocent.
Determined to find another way, Adam and Eve separate in search of a victory that will not cost them their souls, and soon think they have found their answer. But while their traditional foe no longer stands in their way, the twins soon learn Pandora is not their only enemy. Will Adam and Eve overcome the odds and emerge victorious? Or will treatury from those they consider allies lead not only to their demise but to the downfall of all humanity?
To the soundtrack of her father’s screams, Eve turned and led Delilah to the balcony. In all her previous visits, it was on this stone jut, hovering over the mountain, she had arrived. Each time, she had looked upon bickering demons of varying sizes—from smaller than a human to larger than a skyscraper—and seen the untouched path which ran from the horizon to the castle doors and down to the eternalchambers of torture. Along this path had walked an endless line of quivering humans, lost in this world they did not understand, lining up for their unimaginable fate.
There were no humans now, nor did the demons fight. Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of beasts of all shapes, colours and sizes were racing up the mountain, making for the castle gates and the stone steps which would lead them to the chamber Eve had just vacated. Not so far away, off the path once trodden by humans, another doorway stood. No demons aimed for this easier target, suggesting Eve’s father had called them to the chamber to neutralise the threat of his natural-born children.
The sky went black.
The sun had not set but rather extinguished. What followed was a shaking which began in the planet’s core and rose for the surface.
Looking over her shoulder, Eve saw Graham rise and knew her father’s demise was the cause of these events. Not only the planet but this pocket universe had been created for her father. Now he was gone, existence was closing up shop.
The shaking grew more violent. Eve clasped Delilah’s hand and led her to the stone wall around the balcony. Debris began to shake loose from the castle’s battlements, then pieces of brick began to fall. A huge crack appeared atop the nearest tower, across from the balcony on which Eve and Delilah stood.
On the mountain, a landslide began, sweeping away hordes of monsters. Two similar events followed the first, removing almost a thousand cruel creatures from contention.
