From the depths of a valley rises the city of Mahala…

It is a city built upward, not across—where streets are built upon streets, buildings upon buildings. It is a city that the Ministry rules from the sunlit summit, and where the forsaken lurk in the darkness of Under.

Rojan Dizon doesn’t mind staying in the shadows, because he’s got things to hide. Things like being a pain-mage, with the forbidden power to draw magic from pain—but he can’t hide forever.

When Rojan stumbles upon the secrets lurking in the depths of the Pit, the fate of Mahala will depend on him using his magic. Unluckily for Rojan … this is going to hurt.
