dc.description.abstract In the fantasy world of Meynas, Art is magic, and Art is power, and none are more powerful than the five Sacred Artisans, the five gods that rule the Continent and walk amongst the people. Meynas is a land choking on plenty, with the five gods preventing war and providing for the basic needs of all inhabitants of the five Great Cities. War is a distant memory, and starvation little more than myth. Even in this peaceful world, however, discontent brews as the dispossessed, Artless masses chafe underneath the rule of the upper class, who have the ability to Craft their realities, using art to perform magic that mimics the feats the gods perform. Overpopulated cities bulge with restless limbs and angry mouths, and in the midst of the bubbling unrest, Veinos, God of Secrets, stumbles upon the greatest secret of the world--that gods can be killed. Veinos reaches out into the mortal world to assemble a cadre of malcontents from different cities and different specialties, including Isoba, a slave that is an illiterate Umbrascribe, Mist, a Stormsculptor who balks at the excesses of her own noble family, and Ashe, a young Flamechanter that watched a god be murdered before her very eyes. With these imperfect tools, Veinos hopes to write the ultimate blasphemy--and end the rule of the gods. en_US
