“You will never be Chieftain.”
“I don’t care. You’ve failed this clan. I will be the one to make you pay for it. You will atone for every failure.”
Tokara’s life has changed forever. He has seen the truth: the gods are false, and even he has the power to topple them over. He is Garuzin, the godslayer, a beacon of hope to the Phenari rebels, now his people.
But they are still hunted. Master Fushi is more determined than ever to find Yusol’keji and extinguish them forever. He is dead set on doing Ren’s will, no matter the cost to himself or anyone else. He is on Malthos’s and Erithos’s trail, and he knows it.
Stability in the clan may not last long. Yusol’keji is at a crux, and it may not survive to see the end of the gods’ reign. Malthos knows how fragile his leadership is, but will the clan tear itself apart or be ripped to shreds by the gods themselves? And if it does, who will face Atonement for its destruction?
