Acclaimed author Sam Sykes returns with the second thrilling novel in his Bring Down Heaven series.
The heart of civilization bleeds.
Cier'Djaal, once the crowning glory of the civilized world, has gone from a city to a battlefield and a battlefield to a graveyard. Foreign armies clash relentlessly on streets laden with the bodies of innocents caught in the crossfire. Cultists and thieves wage shadow wars, tribal armies foment outside the city's walls, and haughty aristocrats watch the world burn from on high.
As his companions struggle to keep the city from destroying itself, Lenk travels to the Forbidden East in search of the demon who caused it all. But even as he pursues Khoth-Kapira, dark whispers plague his thoughts. Khoth-Kapira promises him a world free of war where Lenk can put down his sword at last. And Lenk finds it hard not to listen.
When gods are deaf, demons will speak.

The Mortal Tally continues the delightful misadventures of a group of - let's call them heroes - in and around a city two breaths and a fart away from tearing itself apart in a world on the verge of utter ruin. What happens when a band of broken bad@sses who hate each other almost as much as they hate themselves are the only hope anyone has? Effing exciting adventure is what. Even when they do the right thing, something goes wrong and things get awesomely worse. Strap in, mofos.
