Bastion: Holy City


‘Believe me when I tell you, her depths were never our own.’

The opulent city of Bastion lies crescent-like before the Bay of Pennants. It rises from the shore, tall towers and cathedral spires dominating its skyline, at its heart an ancient pyramid thousands of years old.

Yet beneath the facade of the Holy City brim dark secrets yearning for the light of day. Secrets that are about to awaken.

Tarsin Va, swordsman and mercenary, returns to find the city and its people at war. Summoned to Irongate, his services are called upon, for the king, Arkos Vantos, is in mortal danger. It has been written that if Arkos should die, the kingdom of Dervae will fall.

Despite his own misgivings and fear of betrayal, Tarsin vows to act. Only he soon discovers the enemies of Arkos Vantos are many and varied, and what he first assumed was a rescue mission, soon morphs into something out of nightmare.

For Tarsin Va, it is a journey into the unknown, a world now brimming with talk of ancient gods and the end of days.

A world where Tarsin, sword in hand, must face his greatest fears … and become the man he was destined to be.
