Another Night at the End of the World
Under the One-King, there are many crimes, but only one punishment: The Chawl, a massive slave-city that has consumed the lives of wicked and innocent alike for generations.
Manadan, a broken, blind and bitter man with many secrets and no friends, is a recent inmate who soon finds himself falsely accused of inciting a rebellion. The only way to avoid further punishment is to help the Warders foil a plot that threatens the Chawl’s tenuous balance of power.
Reluctantly agreeing, Manadan finds himself yoked to Gupti, an unfailingly optimistic young Warder. The arrangement is contentious from the first, but as they work together Manadan learns that simply waiting for the end of the world is no way to live, and an unlikely companionship is begun which will have consequences for the entire world.
