A dying world.
A girl never meant to be sentient.
Siriaa is dying. A poison is spreading throughout the planet and none know how to neutralize it. Finder, working in King Tamblin's castle kitchen most of her life, has never spoken. A child of questionable parentage, Finder is an orphan assigned to perform duties nobody else wants.
While others plan intrigue, murder and invasion to escape the poison's effects, Finder watches all in mute acceptance. Will she be the key to Siriaa's salvation, or will it die about her, without knowing why?
Quin feels obligated to help those she can, but it will require powerful help.
Does such a thing exist?
If so, will it answer her call?
"My life in Gungl began a moon-turn later, when I was finally able to pull myself out of bed without crushing grief slamming into me and causing me to collapse.
The following day, my plan for revenge against Vardil Cayetes, the man responsible for Siriaa's destruction, began."
* * *
Siriaa has been destroyed at the command of an enraged criminal. The poison infecting that planet has been flung into the universe, landing upon hapless worlds in its path.
The Orb has dropped Quin onto another world five years in the future, where she is compelled to seek revenge against Vardil Cayetes, the one responsible for Siriaa's destruction.
From a crumbling, lawless world to one held in the tight fists of a criminal alliance, a disguised Quin searches for her enemy, whose only concern is keeping his life, no matter the cost to others. Quin and another innocent become targets when the enemy learns of the danger they represent.
Will Cayetes succeed in his assassination attempts?
Not even the gods can predict the outcome.
History doesn't always happen as it is written.
—Nefrigar, Chief Archivist
"It began like this," he said, his smile slightly crooked as he lifted his cup of wine to me.
"I had an older brother, born to one of my father's legitimate mates. His name was Wellend and he was heir to the Karathian throne. On his sixteenth birthday, my father gifted him with the Heir's Ring, as was proper."
* * *
After thousands of years, Wylend's niece and nephew are making a bid for the Karathian throne. All they need, it seems, is a book and a ring to prove their inheritance. It matters not to Deris and Daris Arden whom they murder or which worlds they destroy in their quest to wrestle the throne from seemingly legitimate heirs. If they conquer the Karathian King and take the throne, their greed will demand that the Alliances be next...
Unless their spell can be broken.
Quin is kept busy placing planet-saving spheres on poisoned planets.
On an isolated planet, a device has been created to hide anyone or anything from even the most powerful, including the gods.
- The spheres
- The device
Who can stop him, now that he is back and stronger than ever?
