Two thousand years ago, the Sorrow Bringer destroyed the First World. She stirs once more.
Into this world is born Rukh Shektan, the finest warrior of his generation. Like all members of Caste Kumma, he has always understood duty, dedicating his life to the mastery of the sword. But defending his home against the Sorrow Bringer will require more than just peerless skill with the blade. It will require the hardest of sacrifices.
It is a lesson taught to him by Jessira Grey, a beautiful woman who Rukh knows to be an abomination. The holy texts warn against her kind: ghrinas, children of two Castes. They are to be executed whenever discovered, but for the first time in his life, Rukh defies duty. Jessira may be the key to the world's survival.
She offers Rukh the promise of terrifying Talents, abilities most name evil but which may also be the only means of saving his world.
For Rukh, the choice was always easy.
