Madness and Gods
The war against the gods was just the beginning. With Athrolan’s queen dead, the kingdom fractures between two heirs-the disinherited and senile Daymir Blackhouse, and the Dhoah’ Laen’s rumored child. Except Alea’s son is imprisoned in Ban, unaware of the power in his veins.
Blood and Mercy
Saving the world may have doomed them all. Keplan reels in the wake of grief and guilt at the blood on his hands. Isolated within the same cold, marble walls as Athrolan’s murderous king, Rih struggles to plot her rebellion leagues away from everything she has ever known. Then tragedy strikes. Rih must choose between a mad king’s life and her own revolution.
