In the first volume a revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood of Freedom which — equipped both with aerial battleships see Airships that have been armed with advanced Weapons and a new Power Source , and high-flying Balloons that are used to bomb Britain —mounts a sustained Invasion of Europe, and imposes socialist reforms upon the entire world. The Pax Aeronautica they have created is destined to last more than a century.
Their leader, whose name is Natas [ie Satan], and who has dominated events from his armoured airship Ariel , is a vulgarized intensification of the topos of the Byronic Antihero first made popular by Jules Verne with his creation of Captain Nemo , a figure he himself apotheosized in the eponymous Robur the Conqueror The sequel, set at the end of this period of enforced peace, describes the upheaval which transforms this Utopian state to one of total anarchy, a transformation engineered by the eponymous Olga Romanoff, a She figure with occult knowledge of mesmerism see Hypnosis who replaces the first angel, the daughter of Natas from the previous book.
Joining forces with Islam, which had suffered defeat in the previous volume, she conducts a ruinous war with the Brotherhood, now known as Aerians, only to be interrupted by a Comet which gasses the entire planet, fatally to her.
