A fugitive slave is running from the desert mines, and from an Empire that is hungry for a new and mysterious metal that the alchemists call brimstone. In a moment of mercy and lust, Ava Sandrino, herself a knight fallen from grace, shelters the slave from his pursuers, and in the light of the moon, he speaks to her of a door. It is a gate that opens into a world that lies beyond the Northern Dark, over the edge of their farthest horizon, where souls are remade. Together, they must cross a borderland that is the domain of magicians, the humans that serve them, and the One O’clock King: a faceless despot who guards the crossroads of worlds.

Justine Rosenberg is an incurable dreamer, wanderer, and the author of The Metals Trilogy as well as its larger narrative arc, Blackwater. She has been consuming and creating fiction for as long as she can remember. Magical realism and science fantasy are her soft spots. Born in California and raised in the Canadian Pacific Northwest, Justine has always had a hard time staying still. She left high school as soon as she was able, did a stint overseas, and attended college only to drop out after going through a revolving door of majors. She is still bumping around the world, underachievingly so. Justine currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. She lives with her husband, her father, and a pile of books that she is gnawing her way through.
