Albion has the gift. With hammer and chisel he can carve angels from cold stone. Apprenticed to a master stonecutter, hes learning an art that sets him apart from other boys. But he does not live an easy life, growing up in the barely settled reaches of the American frontier. And when strangers come to his home in Little Sion and make him an incredible offer, Albion decides to leave his small town behind. Lured away to work on a secret project on the utmost fringes of civilization, Albion meets a renegade Iroquois with a thirst for revenge, a girl like no other hes ever known, and a new master who demands more than Albion can give. This is the tale of his journey into darkness and back again. This is his journal, one of the only things that survives his trek into a strange and unforgiving world.
