A Sword of Wrath, Book I: Blood and Dust
Book Description HTML
Outside of the city, rebellion stirs. The young outcasts of Odalia's poorest district have recently joined forces with the local sorceress guild - the darkly sensual but extremely dangerous Veneficas - in order to challenge the power-mad Emperor Tiberius. Meanwhile, her ancient enemies to the South must discover why the monstrous and bloodthirsty Gigantes have suddenly reappeared in startling numbers. And, in the midst of all the chaos, a child is born in secret, under cover of darkness. Tiberius' fanatical laws have outlawed her very existence, but when a kind - hearted soldier hides her within the palace nursery, while her clandestine origins be discovered as she's raised among the Emperor's own concubines?
