Summary from Goodreads:
Think Avengers + Inception colliding in Assassin’s Creed with a Narnian glaze and you’ve just about got it…
What if you discovered a metaphysical realm inside you — much like the physical world — where everything you did transformed the real world around you in real time? In the supernatural world of Cupél, this realm — called The Soulscape — is a powerful reality that has given rise to Twinmark Abilities, Soulstone Engineering, and Blood Alchemy.
700 years ago, three men sold their souls for a throne, becoming neither dead nor alive. Heroes have risen, armies have assembled, and nations have combined to destroy them. All have failed. Those who brought light, life and truth into the world – Forges – have been hunted into hiding or extinction by those who bring darkness, death and deceit – Rifters – and now the Immortals are bored. Dividing the world, the Immortals use their subjects as pawns in chaotic games, but a single event has threatened their rule.
Four young renegades have chosen to stand against them.
A resurrected assassin with a new mind and old reflexes, who’s past may kill him before he eliminates his target.
A caged princess bent on escaping the lies in which her parents have swaddled her, but the truth she seeks is not the truth she wants.
A cunning spy who believes he knows how to end the Immortals, but his desire to replace them blinds him to what it may cost.
A peaceful blacksmith turned bounty hunter to unravel the life of the very Immortal he works for.
In this decaying world, their collision could have only been orchestrated by gods or demons and their success will require them to go deeper inside themselves than they have ever gone before.
