Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years ago, the world ended. Today, eleven strange 23-year-olds are living in and defending Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. They've made a new friend, and together they've successfully defended their home from outside attackers, a ghost from the past, and threats from within. In Volume Five, everything you thought you knew about the 'Angels is wrong. In fact, much of what they thought was true simply hadn't been sufficiently examined. While Alice keeps watch over Whitechapel from the watchtower, the twelve reunited Freakangels down below are forced to re-examine their lives... and their deaths!
