Full description for Beyond the Hanging Wall
As an apprentice to his physician father, fourteen-year-old Garth Baxtor accompanies him on the healer's annual journey to the mines of Escator. Deep below the earth in the Veins, scores of hardened, criminals work endlessly in darkness and despair, harvesting a precious commodity known as gloam. Garth is gifted with the Touch, an ability to sense sickness and encourage healing. Laying his hands on a prisoner, Garth discovers a horrifying secret that could shake the kingdom of Escator to its foundations.
