The Ring of the Killravens
(Sanctum of the Archmage: Hell Gate, Part II)
A new constitution prepares Carlissa for an era of enlightenment. The harsh traditions of the past fade, and a promise of freedom stirs the air.
In the space of one terrifying day, that promise is shattered in a bloodbath of fire and magic.
In Hell Gate II - The Ring of the Killravens, the survivors of the Horde’s first brutal assault regroup and consider their options. The royal family plans a desperate gamble to use the power of an ancient, hidden artifact against the demons.
An ancient enemy returns with the opening of the Hell Gate. Chaos reigns as the people rally to fight a desperate battle for survival, and many wonder bitterly why the gods seem to have abandoned them. Their only hope lies with the magic of the Archmage — and his, with a free-spirited princess who never wanted to rule. She must find the strength to set aside her bard’s calling and take up a battle against impossible odds, or surrender her land and people to the Black Magus and his demons.
The Ring of the Killravens is the second of four novella length episodes in the miniseries Hell Gate. An earlier version of this book appeared as part of the novel Dawn of Chaos, published briefly on Amazon in 2017. The Hell Gate miniseries is also being released as a full length novel of the same name in September 2022.
