Beyond the remnants of our broken Earth lie many worlds, connected by pathways forgotten and invisible. They were left by the gods and have been found by Flynn.
In a world scarred from nuclear holocaust generations ago, a liar and monster named Flynn has been cursed with newfound clarity. Locked within the looming height of the towering prison of Civilis, he was content to accept his lot and pay for his sins when the occupant of a neighboring cell had different ideas.
Despite himself, he accompanies the prisoner Jean in her daring escape, determined to redeem himself outside. Hunted and haunted by the uncertain hours leading up to his capture, Flynn finds himself returning to an abandoned facility as a rift to another world opens at his nearing.
Together, Flynn and his allies will venture to the worlds beyond, tangling with forces both ancient and immortal. They stand alone-hated, scorned, and the last hope of restoring a cosmic balance that had been shattered many centuries past.
As the final days near, a benevolent god strains beneath his shackles. Worlds will fall and only the pure of heart will be saved, unless a company of seven on a bloody crusade emerge victorious.
The outcasts are adrift-they have a mission but no means to fulfill it. Airia Rousow, the fallen goddess who set them on their path, is gone. Guardian Poe, her intended successor, believes deification will absolve him of his sins and his remorse alike. And Zella Renivar, daughter of the Living God, is still hunted by her father's agents, drawing danger on them all.
Trapped in this storm, Flynn is able to find and open the ways between worlds, but cannot discern which path is the right one. Since losing the trust of his closest friend, the temptation to fall back on his former, deceitful ways grows with every crisis he faces.
These are heroes not of virtue, but of circumstance-and it will fall on Flynn to keep them all together.
While the forces of righteousness work to bring the end of days, Abyss Kwarla follows her dearest friend as they venture the worlds.
Something has ensnared itself around Abyss Kwarla's arm-a glass gauntlet, whose ancient power has guided her down the invisible paths that connect the many worlds.
Krygem, her truest companion, has long accepted this boon at face value-and though their journey has taken her far from home, Abyss has never once feared becoming stranded or lost-it was never the danger that shook her, but their unknowable, inexorable destination.
Even after years of delving through the forgotten, countless realms, she remains afraid of what might come next, of what face it might wear. She didn't know it when she found it-in a chaos god's den, with a man named Flynn.
