For Lucifer Morningstar, the former ruler of Hell, retirement has proved a little problematic. Recruited by Heaven to save all of Creation from the threat of the Voiceless Gods, he has been rewarded with an object of inconceivable power a gate that leads to the uncreated void.
But the gateway itself is only a tool that Lucifer must use to achieve his true goals. Now his quest will take him to the Japanese afterworld of Izanami, and to the terrible House of Windowless Rooms, in search of his lost wings. Leaving his immortality and power at the door, Lucifer walks into a labyrinth of traps and treachery where the only thing more dangerous than failure is success.
And behind him, in the Los Angeles piano bar that has become his home, the powers begin to gather drawn by the door that Lucifer has cut into the fabric of existence, and willing to destroy the whole of reality in order to possess it.
When the storm breaks, there may be nothing left for Lucifer to return to.
