Plot Type: Mini Plot

A direct sequel of sorts to Mortal Instruments and part of the Vexed to Nightmare macro-plot.

Himmel und Hölle in Bewegung setzen - lit. "put heaven and hell in motion." A German idiom.

Hermann Steinschneider (alias Gottfried Muller, Erik Jan Hanussen), the immortal Nazi sorceror who attempted to take the Liber Consecratus from Gotham City is still out there, and John Constantine and Bucky Barnes are determined to finish him once and for all. This latest adventure takes them to Germany in pursuit of the one thing that could potentially kill him - a copy of the famed Spear of Destiny that the Nazis managed to create while the true artifact was in their possession, inevitably leading them to Berlin's occult landscape and a specific community of clairvoyants bent on the protection of a young man that Steinschneider and the Cult of the Cold Flame seem to have a very unhealthy interest in….
