(From the publisher):
The chained city of Deepgate is now in ruins, and the Spine militia are trying to halt the exodus of panicking citizens with brutal force.
Rachel and the angel Dill are dragged off tho the Temple torture chambers, but strange things start to happen as a foul red mist rises from the abyss beneath the city. Cataclysmic events have left the gates to hell unguarded, and powerful forces are ready to seize their opportunity.
Cospinol, god of brine and fog, is coming to hunt down his brother's murderers, and his foul, fog-wreathed skyship has already reached Sandport, bringing its own version of hell.
By know, Rachel just wants to keep her young companion alive. Escaping from their prison and with enemies closing in on all sides, they are forced to undertake a perilous journey across the Deadsands towards the distant lands of Pandermia and Coreollis.
But the battlefields at Coreollis are fated to become the focus for a clash of powers -with men and gods and archons and slaves all forced into desperate alliances. And, whoever wins, it is bad news for everyone... except the ever-growing armies of the Abyss.
