'Welcome,' the Darkwing said. 'This is my universe of rage, of dark anguish' – he hesitated for a moment, and then hissed – 'and revenge.'
From the gilded cities to the spiritless wastelands, the Darkwing's monstrous army roams, intent on destroying the master race, the Sol-ket, and their slaves. But the demon lord has determined opponents in Gardep the warrior, Cusha the slave-girl, and Vishtar the captive. Each has embarked on a quest to fulfil their destiny, and every step they take draws them to the forbidding Dark Tower at the end of the earth – and face to face with the demon lord himself...
A sweeping epic – mighty battles, betrayals, broken promises and secrets revealed mixed with a vividly-imagined cast of shape-shifters and demons – from the award-winning author of the Legendeer Trilogy.
