Rojan Dizon spends most of his life out of the sun. That's because his city, Mahala, is built deep into a cleft in the mountains, such that only the uppermost levels get direct sunlight. At the very bottom--in Under--there is no natural light at all.

And Under is where Rojan must take his illegal talents, on a search that will rattle the city to its very foundations.

From official release/information:

Product Description: From the depths of a valley rises the city of Mahala. It's a city built upwards, not across - 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 he can't hide for ever. Because when Rojan stumbles upon the secrets lurking in the depths of the Pit, the fate of Mahala will depend on him using his magic. And unlucky for Rojan - this is going to hurt.
