Torments of the Traitor

Author(s): Ian Irvine


This is the paperback edition of the first book in the new series, beginning about ten years after the ending of The Well of Echoes, and following some of the surviving characters from that series. After ten years of servitude, Nish is about to be released from the blackest prison of the maimed God-Emperor, Jal-Nish Hlar, Nish's corrupt father. Jal-Nish holds the two sorcerous quicksilver tears, Gatherer and Reaper, and controls the Secret Art. All opposition having been crushed, he has begun to remake the world in his evil image. The only hope of overthrowing him lies in Nish, whom the oppressed peoples of the world see as a messianic figure, the Deliverer. As Nish was dragged off to prison, he had wildly promised to return and cast down his father. Unfortunately, Nish is powerless and without allies. But worse, his father wants Nish to become his lieutenant, as corrupt as he is. Faced with the unbearable alternative of another ten years in prison, Nish isn't sure he can resist the temptation.
