Before the Fall
Book 2 of the Rojan Dizon Novels
By Francis Knight
A reluctant hero takes on dark magic and corruption in this fantasy adventure - the second novel set in the vertigo-inducing city of Mahala.
MAHALA - CITY OF CONTRASTS. LIGHT AND DARK. HOPE AND DESPAIR.
Rojan Dizon just wants to keep his head down. But his worst nightmare is around the corner.
With the destruction of their power source, the vertical city of Mahala is crisis. Riots are breaking out, mages are being murdered and the city is divided. But Rojan's hunt for the killers will make him responsible for complete anarchy. Either that, or an all-out war. And there's nothing Rojan hates more than being responsible.
