Ossard is falling...
The world is dying, a victim of a divine war few mortals are aware of, let alone understand. The rival gods of Life and Death have set the scene for this great unravelling, leaving the world unbalanced and crumbling. One by one, peoples and nations fall into ash and ruin.
The wealthy city-state of Ossard is about to become a casualty of this ages long battle. A chain of unsolved kidnappings is but the first symptom of its impending fall. The powers that be seem unable to stem the diabolical crimes, but one woman, coming of age and awakening to magic, will stand up for the innocent and flare as a last spark of hope.
Juvela is different...
The very currents of the celestial are open to her, and that includes the truths they hide. As she investigates the mysterious kidnappings she'll face cultists, the bloody agents of the Inquisition, and the gods themselves. Can she overcome forces both human and divine, while she wrestles with her own emerging powers that threaten to turn her into something unrecognizable?
