A Dark Epic Fantasy Novel
At twenty-five, warrior Dahoud has a conscience heavier than a bricklayer’s tray and more curses on his head than a camel has fleas. He fights to protect his people – but how can he shield them from the evil inside him?
The only woman who can save him is the courageous weather-dance magician Merida – if he does not destroy her first.
Enter a world of magicians and rebels, bellydancers, warriors, diplomats and demons. Journey into a besieged fortress, a palace harem, a nomad camp, a flaming inferno. Immerse yourself in duels, battles and daring escapes.
Caution: contains violence. Not recommended for readers under 16.
