From the ruins of war, the monsters crawled…
Reeling from the explosion that brought down an empire, Lynch and I make plans to disappear. It’s clear that the scheming Timekeepers are far more dangerous than the empire ever was.
But they aren’t the only threat the city holds.
Rumors swirl about bloodthirsty creatures roaming the tunnels of the undercity, and the sun-seared streets aren’t much safer. We decide take our chances underground.
But when a violent attack forces us back to the surface, we have to face an ugly truth. In order to survive, we will have to fight. And we will have to team up with the very people we’ve been running from.
The war isn’t over yet. And the ones who claim to want to save us?
They might be the real monsters…
In a world scorched by natural disaster, and a city destroyed by centuries of war, hope is a word most people have forgotten. Mutant soldiers enforce the rule of the few, monsters lurk in the tunnels below ground, and an enigmatic group called the Timekeepers play a deadly game with the lives of the survivors...
When one woman stands up to fight, she finds an army behind her. And when she falls, she'll take an empire down.
For fans of Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows, Scott Lynch's Lies of Locke Lamora, and Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake. This dystopian science-fantasy series will keep you guessing with secrets, simmering tension, and high-stakes action.
