Beyond the edge of creation lies the Black Stair. And beyond it, amidst the void, he waits. Mol Uhltep, The Last God. This is the tale of those who claimed to slay him, and the world they doomed with their lies. Thirty years in the past, Tyr forges an alliance with a new member of his fellowship, a powerful spellcaster who reveals an unimaginable truth to the Fellowship: the one, true origin of the Last God. In the present, as the forces of the Last God attempt to breach the Pinnacle, Skol, grandmaster of the Guild Eldritch, unveils her plan to Queen Cyanthe and Veikko, while Valko uncovers the first of many horrible truths about the cost of human magic.
