The crime lords of Carabas don’t take kindly to strangers meddling in their affairs. Interfering with the gangs and the guilds of Gamor is the surest way to float south.
Edmond is being hunted by the fish-eyed assassin. The killer has been picking off his bravos one bloody death at a time, prompting Edmond to decide the time has come to leave Titan’s Folly. Mirastious has the perfect destination in mind: the Godforge-a powerful, magical artifact capable of creating the gods themselves. With the recent kidnapping of Isobella Morecraft–arch hellcatcher–the location of the Godforge is now compromised.
But Edmond and Mira aren’t the only ones seeking the threshold to the realm of the gods; Sofia Diladrion, and her Roosters are hunting it as well. Augustin and the remaining knights also set out, hired by an old acquaintance – none other than Tristan’s sister, and Augustin’s old love: Serenia. Hellcatchers, gangsters, tomb raiders, and alchemists all collide while hunted by cannibals, Signerde pirates, and Nameless Death himself. Will Edmond and Augustin survive the threshold of power, or will the Godforge and its denizens claim their souls as tribute?
