Book Description:

THE QUEEN BELIEVES HER LEGACY IS A TWO THOUSAND FOOT MONSTROSITY. DRAKIRI BELIEVE THAT SAME MONSTROSITY WILL BRING ABOUT THE APOCALYPSE. ONE BELIEF AGAINST THE OTHER.

Minister Shea Ashcroft refuses the queen's order to gas a crowd of protesters. After riots cripple the capital, he's banished to the border to oversee the construction of the biggest anti-airship tower in history. The use of otherworldly technology makes the tower volatile and dangerous; Shea has to fight the local hierarchy to ensure the construction succeeds—and to reclaim his own life.

He must survive an assassination attempt, find love, confront the place in his memory he'd rather erase, encounter an ancient legend, travel to the origin of a species—and through it all, stay true to his own principles.

Climbing back to the top is a slippery slope, and somewhere along the way, one is bound to fall.

„Poetry in prose... I love a story that is huge, but also incredibly intimate, and this novella managed to encompass both of these things.“ — Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel in Game of Thrones)

„Barsukov's prose is not merely a feast for the eyes, it is an explosion of textures, a narrative metaphor that wraps the reader in gritty burlaps of politics, the oaken solidity of wonder, and powerful silks of longing.“ — Lawrence M. Schoen (author of Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard)

„One of the best novellas I have ever read.“ — Blaise (a reviewer here on Goodreads)
