Sleeping gods should be left to slumber.
Evelyn is the heir to the throne, but she has never envisioned herself wearing a crown. Her life has a higher purpose -- she is destined to seize the Orb of Azure, a fabled artifact that can turn a mortal into a god. But when the armies of the Necromancer overrun her homeland and kill the king, Evelyn finds herself a queen without a kingdom. She comes to realize her people only have one hope at salvation: awakening the god she was destined to supplant.
Captain Bently is a Royal Guardsman who believes his days of hardship are in the past. But when his city is sacked by the undead, he is forced to abandon his family and escort the mysterious daughter of a witch into the forbidden realm of his enemy. Once there, he is thrust into a world of treacherous politics, religious secrets, and arcane arts. Bently is soon enlisted to venture on the most perilous quest of all.
tells of the journey undertaken by a desperate few to awaken the last of the Sundered Gods. To do so, the baseborn son of a king must join forces with his sworn foe. A young sorceress must find a way to control the wellspring of magic that flows through her blood. An uncertain elf lord must master the game of politics if he hopes to navigate a court riddled with dark intrigue, while a dragon must unlock the fiery strength of his ancestors. With the Necromancer's reach ever-expanding, these chosen few must decide the fate of the world: to awaken the vengeful god of old, or bow to the dominion of the dead.
The battle for Laveria is at hand. To the victor goes the Orb of Azure, and with it, the power to reshape the world.
