This sequel to Gabriel's Chalice takes place 25 years after the Great Judgment. Though mankind is living in 1000 years of peace, just like the Israelites who lost their faith in the desert, man still has not learned from past mistakes. Tampering with God's universe, they set into motion actions that cause an asteroid to veer onto a collision course with Earth and end man's reign on the planet. But God tasks the Matteo family with finding three keys that will unlock the power of the guardians and protect the planet.
