The angel Alexiel loved God, but she rebelled against Heaven when she saw how disgracefully the other angels were behaving. She was finally captured, and as punishment sent to Earth to live an endless series of tragic lives. She now inhabits the body of Setsuna Mudo, a troubled teen in love with his sister Sara. Setsuna's misery mirrors the chaos among the angels, and their combined passions threaten to destroy both Heaven and Earth.
Things look bleak for the rebellion as Sevy tightens his grip on heaven. While Setsuna is locked in a cage, severely wounded, Sara heads to court for a trial that Sevy has rigged to insure her conviction. But the evil prime minister's plotting may be beginning to unravel. More and more of the company of Heaven turn against him, and Setsuna begins to receive aid from unexpected sources. All the while, Rosiel constructs his own plots in the background. Has Sevy made the mistake that will be his last? Or will his machinations prevail?
