When Cass draws her blade, nothing can stop her. Except maybe a god.
Cass is a seasoned warrior with many battles under her belt. She's tamed griffins, toppled trolls and conquered mountains. She's a warrior. Helping others in need is what warriors do. She's never been afraid of a challenge. Until now.
A quest lands at her feet to help an ailing queen. It's a simple mission, and there's a bonus to it. A handsome northerner has offered to join Cass on her journey. Under any other circumstances, Cass would be delighted with such a task. Adventure? Excitement? Altruism? A fellow warrior with eyes the color of icebergs? A tent big enough for two? Sign her up.
But then there's that god to deal with. The cure for the queen lies in his temple. He's a nasty sort who isn't given to saving queens. Still, the northerner is quite warm, and the nights will be cold. Cass must do the right thing, gods be damned.
