Mhets Sorrowbringer. He’d brought a nation to slaughter for his stolen and slain wife, for a god’s gold. Now, aged and weary and wary, he returns to the remains of Ashlare, the country he helped destroy, to the very city of mercenaries his blind vengeance helped create, and there confronts an old comrade whose worldly aspirations promise only destruction and death.
Ced Matteron. A mercenary who’d banded together numberless men and brought them to Mhets’ hand, all for the payment of the Chained God’s Gold. He aided the decimation of the nation of Ashlare, and now begins his own campaign of treachery, backed by divine wealth.
Mhets understands Matteron’s workings, can see what the man’s selfish intent will produce, and sets out to stop him. Yet, for all his righteousness, Mhets finds himself a prisoner, locked away and forced to fight for his life and the entertainment of murderers and cheats within Blades’ grand arena. And he comes to discover just how black Matteron’s heart has become, and how that blackness threatens not only Mhets’ life but the entirety of the world.
"The Lonely Man: City of Blades" continues the tale of Mhets Sorrowbringer, a man wronged and angered in life. He owns a past riddled with atrocity, betrayal, and death. And here is where his true story picks up. Here is where the man once called Mirthless Mhets continues to turn his infamy into legend.
