Raised in isolation, La'tiera has been coddled and secluded, her mission too important to risk anything happening to her. The Herald--a harbinger comet--has appeared in the sky, telling all the Time of Trial is near.
She is ready to do as her duty requires, though the very world she will die to preserve is one she will never see.

Dal has led a free life, serving the Order established centuries ago to find and instruct the Bearer in how to perform the Trial established by the covenant made between the Four Gods and the Demons who seek to take over his world. Yet as the latest Trial approaches, there has been no news of the Bearer. The Order is worried...

A lively child draws these two together. La'tiera is elated at seeing a person or two from the outside, even as she worries her selfish desire for companionship might put all in jeopardy. Suspicion then arises on both sides, as what she has been taught and what Dal knows to be true are widely different. La'tiera knows the truth--she is the sacrifice that will save the world, no matter who says it should be otherwise. Her task has always been clear. She will not be swayed from her course.

But Dal knows her death will open their world to the savage Demons--the exact opposite of what she has been told. He must find a way to get her to accept this before it is too late. But can he? Her very dedication and stubbornness might just doom their world to destruction. Let the battle of wills begin.

About the Author

Gloria Oliver lives in Texas, making sure to stay away from rolling tumbleweeds while bowing to the never-ending wishes of her feline and canine masters. She works fulltime shoveling numbers around for an oil-and-gas company and squeezes in some writing time when she can. Her previous works have been fantasy, urban fantasy, and young adult fantasy novels. Several contain romantic and mystery elements. Her short stories of speculative fiction can be found in all manner of anthologies, covering things from the fantastic and strange to a Bubba Apocalypse.

Gloria is a member in good standing of BroadUniverse, although she has yet to make the list for Cat Slaves ‘R’ Us. In her spare time, (what's that?) she watches TV shows, movies, and anime, plays PC games, as well as reads, as well as tinkering/maintaining multiple people’s websites.
