By S.G. Night

It's been 106 years because the Demonic Dominion conquered Io. 106 years because they enslaved Humanity, banished the Elves into the mountains, and systematically exterminated the Majiski battle-mages. For the Genshwin -- the underground community of Majiski survivors, a brotherhood of assassins, spies, mercenaries, and thieves -- it really is an age of worry, secrecy, and clandestine struggle opposed to Io's conquerors. yet for Jared, a Genshwin of the top order, there looks no result in sight. No desire final. No recourse left...but to turn into one with the Demons.

From the younger writer of the critically-acclaimed darkish delusion bestseller Attrition: the 1st Act of Penance comes the unstated story of the murderer who fell from grace, who may betray every little thing he knew, all people he loved...and positioned Racath Thanjel at the route to turning into the Savior of Io.
