Ebon Dirge, heinous slayer of multitudes, has failed. After attempting to murder one of the four God Emperors, the loftiest experts in the universe and rulers of the Divine Realms, he has been captured and his fatal punishment has been meted out at last.
Reduced to nothing more than a vengeful spirit, Dirge's remaining fragment of a soul has arrived in one of the Mortal Realms, prepared to hatch a new scheme and begin anew. Determined to complete his task, he now uses an arcane art to snatch the one thing he lacks most, the thing that just might give him the edge he requires: destiny.
But seizing the power of destiny will require more than just a grasping hand and a discerning eye. Lacking so much as a physical body, Dirge must rely on schemes and treachery to pave his path to ascend once more, shattering and consuming the fates of the chosen ones to construct his own.
