Mel Aqat, a ruined city, old when the ancestors of humanity were young...

Dhavibastha is a powerful demon imprisoned in the city, once worshiped as a tiger god by the giants of Xen'drik. Finding the ruins gave Janik Martell wealth and fame, but the last time he was there the woman he loved betrayed him and tried to kill him.

Now, the ancient evil is stirring again. Janik may be the only one who can stop it, but to do that he'll have to return to the one place he swore he'd never go again, to face his own demons, to place himself... in the Claws of the Tiger.
