The Living God follows the internal struggle of two Mages as they confront their fears of powerlessness and attempt to find meaning in the hand that life dealt them.
Saran seeks to overthrow her crazed father and salvage what is left of her country before it falls into complete ruin. Keleir is cursed with a Oruke’s soul at war with his own. The two are touched by fate, gifted with the ability to sense each other, and destined for a future that neither care to know. When Saran’s magic is stolen, she must confront a life without the ability to manipulate time, struggle to see the rebellion finished, and keep Keleir from falling ever closer to becoming The Living God.
THE FIRST IN A SERIES:
The Living God is the first in a four-book fantasy/science fiction series about Mages who fight to stop a Oruke, a creature forged from the excess matter left over at the birth of a universe, from collapsing dimensions upon themselves in order to form a single, perfect one for his kind.
"The setting in this story is brilliant, expertly combining elements of high fantasy, urban fantasy, and dystopian sci-fi in ways that feel complimentary and natural. The idea of a primordial abomination seeking godhood as an antagonist is inspired, raising the stakes at the onset of the story and keeping them high for the duration. The writing is gripping, the characters are relatable and dynamic, and the story is smart and original. I'm hooked already, and I'm eager to see more!"
