There is no night in the Everburning City. 

There can never be. 

For four hundred years, the City has been besieged by an enemy that has swallowed the entire world. The land that the City now sits upon has been claimed from the Gloam; a grey mass of smoke-like mist that kills everything within it. Only fire, pumped endlessly from beneath the world, holds the Gloam at bay.

But things move beneath the shrouding mists of the Gloam, and they march for the City. Against them lie only the resolve of its soldiers, and the audacity of Crafter Tabitha a'Loria, and her apprentice Gerald Raeth, defying the powers of the City to build the first hope humanity has known since the Everburning City's founding.

You’ve done a great job establishing the premise of the story. It’s short and to the point, but still beautifully descriptive. I wouldn’t exactly say I’m hooked, though. It needs more compelling emotion. Give readers a reason to care about what’s happening.

The beneficial Bore, unlike the Bore that released the Dark One in Wheel of Time books. I like it.

This is an excellent intro. I'm already intrigued by this world.

Caffeine: I honestly couldn't find anything wrong with this prologue. It's short, but I don't think any caffeine is needed.

This is an excellent start to the story. I found the second paragraph the most interesting and what hooked me into the story. The Gloam seems destructive but also intriguing how it even became so relentless in the first place. It definitely makes the reader want to keep going on that’s for sure
