Something is killing Salla Saar. Ever since using the power of the Eyes of the One locked within him to locate Tempusalist and put an end to the 13th Paragon, the attacks have come, powerful and acute. Sometimes it's as minor as a blackout. Other times, it's as if he's being broken to pieces from the inside out, and the next episode could be his last. He suspects it has something to do with the Eyes of the One, but why has their power turned on him now?
Once in the custody of the Majdi Order, the peace-keeping sect that has been hunting him since Tempusalist, his fate is decided: Salla Saar is too dangerous to walk free.
That declaration grants him a sentence to the House of Falling Rain—a retraining facility for wayward Majdi. Yet among the misfits of the Order housed in these decrepit corridors, there is another presence lurking, something filled with a dark and terrible purpose.
