Fade to Black
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.

Pain magic, world building, and a beautiful cover. The hero...yeah I was not a fan. I'm torn on whether to continue this series. Those are really pretty covers! Read full review

Fairly Typical. I lost interest about half way through. The book shows promise, but between a tell vs show sort of writing (like the badass detective... didn't seem so bad ass to me) and a world that doesn't make sense, fundamentally. Read full review
