Nyrusys is a land of sweeping blights, bloodthirsty beasts, and unanswered prayers. Death is constant, and miseries are plentiful. The Truch kingdom endures the unending horrors of the North by picking through dead cities and plundering empty tombs.
But these pilfered relics and hollowed temples impart a chilling lesson: all is destined for ruin. The gods are uncaring. And this delicate balance, by which all humanity depends, will be undone.
Yukysh, a former sellsword, and her spectral companion, Shugokrur, find themselves in the center of these inevitable, cataclysmic events as the gods mold Nyrusys for some unconceivable purpose. But as the world collapses around them, they learn truths that, even now, drag the world to its inevitable ruin.
