Complications ensue: Beauty is realistically diminished during pregnancy, the first-born child is forfeit to Satan under the pact that guaranteed Florains success, and an irascible saint is eager to call down holy fire on transgressors.

Florian treads close to damnation and is saved only when Satan and the angel Michael conspire to let recent events become, again, a dream: he has a rare second chance and learns better. -- The Encyclopedia of Fantasy
