Ian Dunai is trapped in the only maze an arch-decemancer can't escape. Time.


Only 1% of the population is blessed with magic affinity at birth. Fewer still have high enough affinities to rule. Ian’s decemancy eclipses all, granting him ultimate control over Death. He conquers cities with a thought and turns them into ruins with a gesture. But overwhelming power isn’t enough to escape the time loop or reveal its purpose.


When Ian discovers a critical clue that he missed years ago, escape is finally at his fingertips.

Little does he know, he's been stuck in the first realm.

“An awesome start to a time loop/cultivation progression fantasy epic.”
Andrew Rowe, author of Sufficiently Advanced Magic
“This story has everything: great characters, great story, insane world building, and it is consistently good across all chapters.”
Mecanimus, author of A Journey of Black and Red

“I just want to thank the author for sharing this magnificent gem with the world. It really is a gift we don’t deserve.”
