(From the publisher):
The gates to Hell have been opened and humanity finds itself pushed to the brink of extinction. Its only hope is the most unlikely of heroes...
Former assassin Rachel Hael is on one last desperate mission to save the world from the grip of Hell. Carried in the jaws of a debased angel, she rushes to the final defensive stronghold of the god of clocks — pursued all the while by the twelve arconites, the great iron-and-bone automatons controlled by King Menoa, the lord of the maze.
But the strange fortress of the god of clocks is unlike anything she could ever have expected. As Rachel travels to the final confrontation she has both sought and feared, she begins to realize that Time itself is unraveling. And so she must prepare herself for a sacrifice that may claim, her heart, her life and even they many not be enough.
