Can a dragon win a battle when death is the enemy?
Abraxas learned long ago that a life without his soul is not one worth living. Heart shattered with the loss of his mate, he does the only thing he can think of. He packs up his children and he leaves the Kingdom of Umbra. The journey across the sea is arduous and long, but soon he finds himself on a very familiar shore.
Dracomaquia. But the island may not be as uninhabited as he originally thought.
Prayers sink beneath the earth as the people of Umbra leave offerings for a new goddess. An elf who sacrificed herself for them. An elf who saw the tidings of war and ended it with a slash of her blade and black blood of a king. Until there are rumblings beneath the earth. Moss that shifts. Stone that cracks.
Cheating death was never the plan. Leaving behind the realm of the dead, however, was always her intent. Lore heard them. She heard her friends, her children, the soul of her dragon and she returns to them as a being reborn. Now she must find him while dealing with newfound powers that might drag her back to the realm she just left.
