There is no night in the Everburning City. 

There can never be. 

Malice hides behind tragedy, as a conspiracy begins to gather steam. Natalia Casper, reporter for the Tributary, risks more than her reputation as she finds herself chasing plots that reach from High Central to the furthest walls. 

Adrian Keates, fleeing a life of crime, takes refuge in the one place in the City with strength enough to drive off even the hardened thugs of the Undercity, and finds himself tutored by a legend of the City's army. 

Tabitha a'Loria, already summoned to fight hellfire and insanity, is forced to hunt for someone who unwittingly holds dangerous secrets. Secrets that could either tear the City apart, or offer it the first hope it has known since the Founding.

^^^these descriptions are great.  They really put me in the mood of the book
                               Think about moving that first sentence further down. The repitition of Disease in this paragraph and the last is kinda distracting. Maybe use a different word as an opener?

I apologise about my ignorance, but is that supposed to be  'Maesters' or 'Masters'?

I really like your descriptions. Good way of showing these things easily recognizable and vivid to us, and put such a gruesome spin on it. It’s sharp and bold, and definitely makes a statement.

This starts out interesting, but then drones on the rest of the way. You had an interesting voice when writing this, but this prologue just felt like a way to expel exposition all at once.

I'm not entirely sure whether to think of the last one as privileged among those scarred and beaten or to pity her as well😕😵
