Dirge of the Dormant book cover

Vast power commands a vicious price

Having unleashed the darkness inside her, Gatekeeper Jora Lanseri has chased the enemy from Serocia’s shores. Now at the height of her power, she faces a new challenge—to rescue the abducted king and retrieve the stolen godheart before the war ship carrying them reaches harbor.

The rogue scribe Ibsa has escaped Jora’s wrath aboard the fleeing ship and seeks to earn the prestigious title of Prime Maga. But she has what Jora wants. The only way to protect herself is to convince the god—by whatever means necessary—to slay the Gatekeeper. To her great fortune, among the ship’s cargo is the god's crystal heart.

Can Jora rescue the king and save the god from unspeakable torment before the darkness inside consumes the last vestiges of her humanity?
