"There's a brother that's balls deep in killer robots and a sister who's the lap dog of God himself. Who do you wanna rescue first?"
In the middle of an interstellar Holy War, a gang of thieves, of different backgrounds and species, are hired to steal a valuable artefact from a dragon creature who calls himself a god.
There is Russell, what you'd get if Mal Reynolds was a three-eyed anthropomorphic jackal with telekinetic powers, and Alice, former champion of the One God. Then there is Alice's brother Charlie, once a mechanic for the Resistance Coalition, who abandoned his post for love, and Wex, a reptile, former monk and translator. The four are caught between the Zodiacal conclave and the Resistance Coalition, both of which want to take over the universe. Meanwhile, the One God has a prisoner locked beneath his palace who has begun to whisper treasonous secrets to a priestess named Cassandra.
