The city of Kartos is a dark, cruel place. Its winding streets lie within the Black Temple's great shadow. The Devout, the priests of the temple, rarely leave its towering walls, but when they do it is only to collect the dead or to lead the city's condemned back to the dungeons. And those who enter do not return. It is common knowledge among the Kartosi that the temple is to be avoided at all costs. Lokk, a young thief oblivious to the machinations of the temple and its puppets, is about to enter a world where evil knows no bounds.
"Didn't want to stop Listening (reading)"
Kartos has fallen, and when Lokk descends to the streets he finds that everything he once knew has evaporated - and now the city faces the gruesome aftermath of apocalypse. A mysterious army of foreign mercenaries worshipping a god from a land far across the sea has come to enslave those few who survived the Reckoning.
