To escape the hell she created, a woman must team up with
a novice warrior and return to her homeland in this
gritty epic fantasy where delusions are literally made
Zerfall awakens in an alley, wounded and unable to
remember her past. Chased by an assassin out into the
endless wastes of the desert, she is caught, disfigured,
and left for dead. Her scabbard is empty, but the need
for answers—and the pull of her sword—will draw her back
to the city-states.
When Jateko, a naïve youth, accidentally kills a member
of his own tribe, he finds himself outcast and pursued
across the desert for his crimes. Crazed from

Hunted by assassins and bound by mutual need, both
Zerfall and Jeteko will confront the Täuschung, an
ancient and deranged religion ruled by a broken fragment
of Zerfall’s mind. Swarm, the Täuschung hell, seethes
with imprisoned souls, but where gods—real or imagined—
meddle in the affairs of man, the cost is high.

faith becomes a powerful tool. But the insane are capable
of twisting reality with their delusions as well, turning
increasingly dangerous as their sanity crumbles. It is
here that a long prophesied evil will be born, an endless
hunger. The All Consuming will rise.
