Fates intertwine – Pantheon calls – Darkness Grows
Far too many blame their own bad luck on Hanen and Rallia Clouw. When opportunity knocks, they leap to put their past behind them.
In the turmoil of a holy order fraught with lies, frustration, and heresy, the paladin Jined Brazstein is called to deeper faith.
When Katiam takes up a seemingly ageless seed pod from a botanist’s desk, she cannot imagine the change it will bring.
Life stirs within that seed, the path to deeper faith beckons, profits are made upon the road, darkness moves–a winged, deathless wrath invisible to the gods.
For those who seek the heroes path,
Fate takes more than bargained for.
Hubris breeds a deathless wrath,
That always hungers after more.
Deathless Beast is Volume One of the Kallattian Saga, the Epic Fantasy series from Andrew D Meredith.
