They were never meant to survive.
Six years before the Day of Reckoning, before King Cyrus, magick was forbidden. Kahl Zimmerman, the bastard son of a tyrant ruler, has lost everything and everyone to the fear of what he is. Oracles of foresight are shunned and burned in a world surging with destitution and lies every oracle but him. Kahl s only hope for redemption is lost to a cruel fate, and when a group of insurgents known as the Elehites invade the city, he is determined to wreak havoc on his enemies, even if he destroys himself.
What begins as a rebellion to save his people ends in a violent war no one can escape from. The lines between love and hate are obscured and Kahl will discover that the past doesn t always remain in the past. The lies run deeper, the blood flows thicker, and the name behind the true enemy is far darker.
