||Book 1 of The Revium Sequence||
In a machine of clockwork and traps, Lukas Steele survives.
In a castle of traitors and silence, Kaliena Fleming learns.
Within a broken empire, a single prison darkens the sky. An empire in which gears whisper secrets and magic darkens souls, with rulers who reside behind their walls and turn their eyes away from bloodshed.
The Revium is what they call it; a home for the worst criminals and the shrieking insane. A deadly machine that strips away the innocent and holds no mercy for the blamed. All noble voices mutter the same words; that the ones inside deserve it all.
It is made to control their shattered world, from the childish wishes of locking away everything they fear. The Revium is created to fulfill their hopes, to submit to the people and do only what they decide on.
And yet the prison is no longer kind.
❝I'm sick and tired of this. It is only those who have never raised their sword, never watched their comrades fall, never listened to the shrieks and cries of the wounded or heard the screams of revenge and death who believe that it is necessary to have a so-called peace. Peace is laughter, joy, and friendship... What we have is hell.❞
