Meanwhile, Mullin's flock of religious fundamentalists bombards the media with threats of catastrophic horror if people refuse to accept him as their savior. ¡ Across the globe, the mysterious Sarajevan orphan Andrea Isbik escapes a Serbian POW camp and finds asylum in Jerusalem, where she seduces cavalcades of religious scholars before finally landing in the Big Easy herself. There, amid the reverie of Mardi Gras, something dark is building. Surrounded by a wild cast of characters, Andrea and Felicity join forces to combat the impending apocalypse, fending off millennial fervor and Mullin's fanatical followers as the world's religions converge on New Orleans for the end of days. ¡ This riveting novel links our most ancient imaginings of Armageddon with our contemporary worship of technology.
