Before the Fall by Francis Knight

A reluctant hero takes on dark magic and corruption in this dystopian fantasy adventure - the second novel set in the vertigo-inducing city of Mahala.

Mahala - city of contrasts. Light and dark. Hope and despair.

The towering vertical city of Mahala is in crisis. With their main power source destroyed, Downsiders are verging on a riot. All that the mage Rojan Dizon can do is keep his head down, get some power back to the city and hope he won't get executed for using his magic. Then when a Downsider and mage is found murdered, all hell breaks loose.

It's Rojan's worst nightmare. When he discovers the killer's identity, he's either going to be responsible for all-out anarchy, or for a war with Mahala's neighbouring countries. And there's nothing Rojan hates more than being responsible.

A tale of corruption and dark magic set in a world that's both vertigo-inducing and awe-inspiring.
