Ciardis has seen the goddess for what she is -- a bloodthirsty deity bent on breaking them before eliminating everyone Ciardis knows and loves.
She,the daemoni prince, and Sebastian, the sitting emperor of Algardis, have set a trap. A plan in motion that will unleash a wave of magic across the land in quantities not seen since the Initiate Wars.
Ciardis knows this is their only hope to defeat a god, but she can only pray that she doesn't do the goddess's work in the process by inadvertently killing the citizens of the empire that she had vowed to protect.
But the battle has begun and she'll do what she has to protect the people she cares about - her family, her friends, her empire. When all the gods feel free to intervene, you do what you have to make sure that the one which wants to destroy you never makes the same mistake twice. In a battle between an immortal and a mortal, the humans are coming to win.
This eleventh novel continues the story of Ciardis Weathervane from Sworn To Quell.
