This is a reference to the horrific giant combat machines Hekkus commissions to be made, the latest one resembling a highly aggressive, giant alien creature.

His first target, a Star King called Malagate the Woe. Still, it wasn’t all bad. I particularly liked The Interchange, sort of an escrow service for kidnappers principss their victims. He offers to write a more complementary and sympathetic article about Falushe than the article that was already submitted to Cosmopolis Magazine which they are about to publish.


This time he is after Viole Falushe.

After a slow start, the story of Kirth Gersen and an unknown antagonist named Malegate the Woe was very engaging and delightfully illuminating. Trivia About The Demon Princes May 23, Jordan rated it it was amazing.
