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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read Decent story overall. The pacing & plot lines got a little muddy in the middle, though it does clear up towards the end. Characters, while somewhat clichéd were enjoyable. The magic system and setting were unique and fleshed out. Worth reading
