While stricken writer Jakob Sandberg breaks freed from the Clearer Minds psychological institute, he unearths himself falling into Escana, the realm of his personal creation.
Therein he needs to view the land during the eyes of his protagonist, a guy tasked with killing six strong participants that threaten the steadiness of an empire.
Hounded by means of the legislations, Jakob's destiny is intrinsicly associated with many figures either sort and monstrous:
An innkeeper's son is torn from his cozy existence and thrown into chaos after uncovering a murderer's secret.
A farmer's daughter flees the homicide of her abusive former lover into the fingers of whatever completely worse.
A Warden uncovers outdated enemies and relives a painful choice in his job of upholding the law.
A girl schemes in excessive locations opposed to a former love on the toes of the Emperor himself.
A blacksmith's prior eventually catches up with him and the implications of his denials quickly develop into fatal.
A sewer-dwelling fugitive makes an attempt to undermine a tyrant with the aid of a mysterious and robust ally.
A wilderness creature is captive to the very beasts its type hunted.
An murderer is exiled for a subversive fact implied and needs to targeted vengeance in harmful circumstances.
From the peaks of the white urban of Levanin to the deserts of Sah'kel, those entwined characters force the plot forth to its inevitable conclusion.
A end that Jakob himself hasn't ever written.
