Fade to Black

Fade to Black

FROM THE DEPTHS OF A VALLEY RISES THE CITY OF MAHALA

It’s a city built upwards – where streets are built upon streets, buildings upon buildings. A city that the Ministry rules from the sunlit summit, and where the forsaken lurk in the darkness of Under.

Rojan Dizon doesn’t mind staying in the shadows, because he’s got things to hide. Things like being a pain-mage, with the forbidden power to draw magic from pain. But when the fate of Mahala depends on him using his magic, he can’t hide for ever.

THE FIRST ADVENTURE OF ROJAN DIZON

A debut fantasy tale of corruption and dark magic set in a world that’s
both vertigo-inducing and awe-inspiring.

WILDER'S BOOK REVIEW
The world building is crazy interesting, the characters are very noir, and the plot was enough to keep me on my toes . . . I'm very excited to read the second in the series!
Felicia Day
A savage stab at organised religion and social control . . . emotionally powerful
SUN
Top notch prose alongside a cast that really adds flavour all round makes this a cracking debut
Falcata Times
A thoroughly enjoyable read with plenty of twists and turns, and darkness enough to make the title perfectly apt. Highly recommended
