Whit is no ordinary teenager. An innocent in the ways of the world, an ingenue when it comes to pop and fashion, she does however rejoice in the exalted status of Elect of God of the Luskentyrian Sect. A month before their four-yearly Festival of Love, the Luskentyrians are thrown into crisis when their Guest of Honour renouces her faith and refuses to attend. Isis’ standing in the community, coupled with the fact that the apostate is her cousin Morag, swiftly marks her out as the person to venture out among the Unsaved and bring the fallen one back into the fold.
