Jenn has coyly suggested that I start all of the fantasy saga titles with prepositions:

To the Wall

Over Burning Cities

Below the [ominous words]

Aboard [some kind of vehicle]

Through [a kind of landscape or country]

With, upon, amid…

Near the End…

I think “Near the End” is the most appropriate.

My fall-back on prepositions likely has to do with taking two undergrad poetry classes where both instructors made us write epic poems where the first line of every stanza started with a preposition.

I suspect I may have turned out a much better writer without a formal education.
