Rojan Dizon just wants to keep his head down. But his worst nightmare is around the corner.

With the destruction of their power source, the vertical city of Mahala is crisis. Riots are breaking out, mages are being murdered and the city is divided. But Rojan's hunt for the killers will make him responsible for complete anarchy. Either that, or an all-out war. And there's nothing Rojan hates more than being responsible.


A tale of corruption and dark magic set in a world that's both vertigo-inducing and awe-inspiring.
