The Kumasagi, who is in training to comfort and guide the souls of the dead, forms an accidental bond with Asta, a woman born from a sacred lake...

Najat has spent years as a senior-ranked diver, harvesting destins as they are born from pods in a sacred lake. Soon he must give up diving in order to fulfill his duties as the Kumasagi, the younger of two powerful mystics who comfort and guide the souls of the dead.

When his brother Jayan returns from exploring the uninhabited lands, Najat falls ill with a mysterious virus. An unexpected chain of events places him in the path of an errant destin—a woman newly born, yet fully grown. The destin instinctively seeks a Holy Amala, the one who can awaken her cognition and help her find her name.

When the destin finds Najat instead, they must both survive a mind-bending confrontation, which leaves them with a deep mystical bond held secret even from each other.

Praise for Kumasagi:

" incredibly detailed, unique fantasy world...I highly recommend this excellent story to anyone who loves sci-fi, fantasy, and romance."
— Amy Sutphin, author of The Twisted Realm series

"Kumasagi is a well-written and lush series opener that does a splendid job of developing its characters within a fascinating world...the book soars when Sheu describes a scene where the title character guides the soul of a young boy—who has just died an accidental and traumatic death—to the light. An absolutely stunning chapter. Kudos to the author!"
— E.G. Radcliff, author of The Coming of Áed series

"Magic plays a huge role in their society and culture, and that's what I really like about this book—the creative vision! The world of Kumasagi is very detailed and intricate."
— Vladimir Radojković, author of the Order of the Spirits series
