Contents: Scree has been destroyed, wiped from the face of the Land in a brutal demonstration of intent. While those responsible scatter to work on the next step in their plan, the stakes are raised --
all the way to the heavens --
as the Gods themselves enter the fray. Returning home to a nation divided by fanaticism, Lord Isak is haunted both by the consequences of his actions in Scree and by visions of his impending death. As he and his allies begin to realise the full extent of Azaer's schemes, it becomes clear they must include prophecy and zealotry in their battle-plans if they are to have any chance of surviving the coming years. As a white-eye, Isak has come to embrace the darker parts of his own soul, but now the savage religious fervour sweeping his nation must also be accepted and turned to purpose. In the name of survival, perhaps even death itself can be manipulated by those with the resolve to do what they must --
whatever they must. With the battle lines vague and allegiances uncertain, the time for heartless decisions and ruthless action has come. Two figures oppose Isak and his allies: the greatest warrior in history, who dreams of empire and Godhood, and a newborn baby whose dreams have no limit.
Responsibility: Tom Lloyd.
