The Dog and the Serpent: Book one of the Books of Belshalara by Rachel Zellers and RL Pigeon

Within the world of Caelus lies the divided, Elven city of Belshalara, a city on the brink of revolution. A city saturated in sex, violence, and corruption. At the heart of this corruption is the Flesh Quarter, ruled by Marquis Lillandyr Shadowglade. The Flesh Quarter is also rife with illicit drugs supplied by Kia Sin'del, boss of the criminal element.
Lillandyr, in order to obtain a tome of illegal and forbidden magic, makes a deal with a long time friend. She must fetch a war god's idol from the dangerous Hidden Quarter, the underground city below Belshalara. She sends Kia Sin'del and the pirate Captain, Anryn Stormcrow to retrieve it while she remains in the city to herald in the Feast of Saint Baellith, patron god of her Quarter.
The Feast Day quickly approaches and all within the city of Belshalara are preparing for the great celebration. It is a day where the Lady Shadowglade makes a sacrifice of herself and publically lays with a man the oracle of her god chooses. Her longtime colleague and friend, Meriweather Osterious intends on being that man. Through dark magic and manipulations of the gods themselves, Merris Osterious contrives a way for his name to be called.
Meanwhile, Anryn Stormcrow and Kia Sin'del fight for their lives in the Underground as they try to escape with the idol.
As the Feast draws to a close, events are set into motion that forever changes the city and the world itself.

About the Author

Meriweather Aleister Asterios was born in 1983 and lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He attended Kendall College of Art and Design in hopes to become an illustrator. After four years, he learned that he was much better with words than he was with pictures.
The second to youngest from a very large family, Merris has always been considered the artistic child. He spent most of his childhood writing and illustrating stories, and it never really left him after becoming an adult.
Merris' favorite authors are Neil Gaiman and Tad Williams. He is a transgendered person, and doesn't mind speaking openly about it. If you're curious, just ask him. He loves his wife, Lillian, very dearly.

Lillian Asterios was born in 1979 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since she could hold a pencil, she wrote and illustrated her own stories. The fantasy genre has always been her first love. She has written and published many short stories and writes erotica under a pen name. Lillian still lives in Tulsa with her three wonderful children, cats, and husband, Meriweather.
