No world can stand...

Moments after Sen stepped through the revenant arch, an inky darkness flooded out across his world. Over the wreckage of a city broken by revolution it surged, engulfing the grand Grammaton tower, smothering the King's Aigle palace and drowning every last caste in the dark.

Outstanding

An excellent sequal to an equally excellent book. The Saint's Rise was about Sen coming into his own, gaining friends, and starting a war.
