It is a story of war and love, of betrayal and devotion, and most of all it is a story of redemption. But to understand that mans tale, there is another you must hear.In the beginning, there were six Titans...Spaertos, the most powerful city in the Westlands, has fallen. In one night the wrath of a furious god reduced the shining city and its people to a smoldering mass grave. Now that god, a Titan embodied within the human vessel known as Willyem Blackmane, is insane - trapped inside his own mind. He does not move, he does not speak, and every moment he spends locked within his madness brings the shadowy Fallen one step closer to their end-game.The remaining Titans have dispersed to the three great seats of power in Pallamar in a desperate attempt to rally humanity to their cause, but centuries of hatred and war have left mankind fractured and divisive, and the Fallen hinder their efforts at every turn. Centuries of lies, secret alliances, and dark legends are about to come to fruition. The Inner Kingdoms are teetering on the brink of self-destruction, and old enemies will do anything in their power to exploit this weakness.But all is not lost.In the East a young woman, heiress to the throne of AlBahir, is about to realize that she is far more than she appears. In the West, the Mad Princess of Avalone will become the catalyst for the greatest movement Pallamar has ever seen. In cities across the world, a mysterious man in black appears seemingly at random to work his will, his ultimate goal unknown. And deep in the Kahara desert, Clare, a goddess unaware of her true nature, may be the only hope the Titans have of survival.
