After ten years of servitude, Nish is still held in the blackest dungeon of the maimed God-Emperor, his corrupt father.
With the sorcerous quicksilver tears, Gatherer and Reaper, the God-Emperor controls all magic and is remaking the world in his depraved image. Now he wants Nish to be his lieutenant, to become as foul as he is. But the malevolent God-Emperor executed the only woman Nish has ever loved and, even faced with another decade in prison, he cannot serve his father.
Santhenar's only hope of freedom now rests on shy, bookish Maelys, who has been ordered to do a shameful duty by her overbearing aunts. Maelys' gift will allow her to reach Nish's dungeon unseen, but how can she get him out past the all-seeing gaze of Gatherer and Reaper?
And even if she does, how can a friendless renegade with no magic take on the most powerful tyrant the world has ever seen?
