Sequel to 'The Edifice' _ Zagan Creed has lost his world. His reputation, his money and his entire future stripped away by the same people that call him God. The world, however, is not finished with him yet. The Edifice- both planet and prison to its magical residents- is changing. The old ruler is stepping down and a new generation of those born from power and discontent must compete to secure their place upon the throne. When Zagan is offered a chance at redemption, not just in the eyes of his people but to outshine the legacy of his brother, he's left with no choice but to accept. Now thrown into a deadly trial to prove his worth, he must choose between fantasy and reality, his pride and his people, his family and his own heart. The clock for the fate of the Edifice is ticking as its prodigal son comes to learn that when something seems to good to be true... it probably isn't.
