The gods are dead. The Veil is growing. The world is dying.
After losing his family in a devastating fire, Faron finds himself in the captivity of the slaver and criminal lord, Dageran. Forced to commit awful crimes in order to survive, Faron grapples with his conscience and morality until he hears whispers that an archaic society is stealing the blood of children to fuel their immortality, whispers that mean his twin sister, Hadria, might not be dead. Death would have been kinder.
With the help of an orphan-thief and an aged tavern-keeper, Faron must blur the lines of morality to escape his slavery and follow a trail of kidnapped children to find his sister. But will Faron find her before her nameday, and what will he find when he does?
