Her power was born of a giant's rage. She treads a treacherous path, where a whisper could mean her demise.
Jassae's world shattered when giants ravaged her peaceful village. Instead of killing her, they thrust her into a cage as a precious captive, an unexpected jewel to control the Dark Goddess.
The once-formidable giants are teetering on the brink, their age-old might slowly but surely fading away. In Jassae, a priestess dedicated to a goddess who inspires more dread than reverence, they see a glimmer of hope for survival.
During a night cloaked in darkness and studded with stars, Jassae reads the bone runes, conduits of ancient wisdom. As she holds the bleached fragments in her hands, a prophecy unfolds, foretelling the rise of a mighty chieftain. The giants believe she holds the key to securing the coveted chieftain's throne. The storm clouds of war gather, stirred by the revival of old grudges.
Jassae's survival depends on her ability to harness the power growing within her, a force capable of devouring her mind and soul. If she can leverage her gift to install her chosen master on the throne, she may reach her first century and achieve her destiny as a priestess of the Dark Goddess.
Yet, the path she walks is fraught with danger, and a misstep carries a terrible price: annihilation... and the end of her sorcerous bloodline.
