Overview

When an evil necromancer threatens all she loves, Ellaeva must risk her sanity to face down the darkness within her soul.

[Dark Epic Fantasy, Castle Siege, Epic Battle]

All the Left Hand of Death wants is something to call her own, but is the price too high?

Ellaeva, the fated avatar of the death goddess, is desperate to track down her missing family but the trail is decades old. Instead, she discovers her battered and bloodied sister priestesses driven across the Jerreki border on pain of death. Ellaeva must turn aside from her personal quest to investigate the murders, only to find her parents have been taken into the heart of the conflict.

Lyram Aharris, favoured son of the royal line of Ahlleyn, is the only living person she trusts to help her infiltrate the enemy stronghold and uproot the horror they find there, but their chequered past threatens the mission. Accompanying him is his crown prince, the one man Lyram wants dead above all others.

Now Ellaeva must face down the darkness in her soul before a dark god is brought into the world.

At the boundary of life and death, all oaths will be tested.

About the Author

AUTHOR: Ciara Ballintyne holds degrees in law and accounting, and is a practising financial services lawyer. In her spare time, she speculates about taking over the world - how hard can it really be? If she could be anything, she'd choose a dragon, but if she's honest she shares more in common with Dr. Gregory House of House M.D. - both the good and the bad. She is a browncoat, a saltgunner, a Whedonite, a Sherlockian, a Ringer and a Whovian... OK, most major geek fandoms. Her alignment is chaotic good. She's an INTJ. Ciara lives in Sydney, Australia, with her husband, two daughters, and a growing menagerie of animals that unfortunately includes no dragons.

EDITOR: Marissa loves falling into a story and just going along for the ride, but she also loves capturing a story and examining it like a naturalist would, trying to figure out what makes it tick and how it turned out so beautiful. She started out editing National Geographic books, and has been editing full time for over five years now, working on all genres but specializing in science fiction and fantasy. She loves her job more all the time. Being able to help storytellers bring their ideas to life and seeing them grow as artists is incredibly rewarding.
