An angry goddess, a vengeful ghost, a spell that threatens the world, and one stranger who might set things right. . . .
Katashan left the service of the gods he mistrusted and abandoned the magic gifts that had failed to help when he needed them most.
The gods aren’t ready to let him go. At the end of a long journey to escape his past, Kat finds the body of a young woman who has been sacrificed before the statue of a benevolent goddess he once served. That goddess has made it plain she wants Kat to break this dangerous spell, no matter what the cost to him.
