Chains that bind the soul are stronger than iron... In the two centuries since the Upheaval and the fall of the God King, the Faceless One’s rule has encompassed the world. He is revered, worshiped, merciless, and he stands unopposed…. Sixteen-year-old Leitos crushes stone by day, and by night shivers in a cramped cell. A slave’s life is brutal and short, but absolute obedience ensures the gifts of peace and bread. All that changes when his grandfather rises against their inhuman slavemasters, forcing upon Leitos a freedom that he never sought. Now, hounded by the Faceless One’s demon-born Hunters, Leitos struggles to heed his grandfather’s last words: “Seek the Brothers of the Crimson Shield.” Those words are his only hope to discover the truth of his people’s enslavement, his only guide to find a secret order of heroes … and they are the words of a madman.
