In Defiance of Heaven details the adventures of the Horsemen during the final days of the Apocalypse. From their journey through Purgatory until their final confrontation with God himself, Niccolo and Cadmus are constantly surrounded by danger and horrible monsters, and it is only a matter of time before it all ends in blood.
