Author: A.K. Larkwood
Publisher: Tor Books
Publication Date: February 11, 2020
What if you knew how and when you will die?
Csorwe does — she will climb the mountain, enter the Shrine of the Unspoken, and gain the most honored title: sacrifice.
But on the day of her foretold death, a powerful mage offers her a new fate. Leave with him, and live. Turn away from her destiny and her god to become a thief, a spy, an assassin—the wizard’s loyal sword. Topple an empire, and help him reclaim his seat of power.
But Csorwe will soon learn – gods remember, and if you live long enough, all debts come due.
Why am I excited?
This looks like such an exciting fantasy! It features an orc priestess, ruthless mages, hungry gods, ancient tombs, and rival sorcerers which all sound like they’re going to make an epic book to me. I’m super intrigued because this sounds unlike anything I’ve read! The cover is also GORGEOUS and I can’t wait to see it in person. Did I mention it’s a trilogy?
