This book is about a herald named Charles and chronicles the story of the duchies of Octamania and Septamania on the planet Zemora in the land of Efacia. This planet is remarkably similar to the planet Earth. Charles goes through a series of adventures that begin with a strange cat jumping on his bed. He then is sent on an investigation of the mysterious death of a girl named Sarah, interviewing each potential person or monster involved. Finally, he encounters a prophetess who is struggling with her own set of problems. Both of them have encounters with the Good Shepherd (who is similar to Jesus on our planet). In the end, the mystery of Sarahs death is solved.
