Saran was born to rule Adrid. Keleir was born to destroy the world. Neither want their fates and will do anything to stop them. The Living God follows Saran and Keleir, two elemental mages gifted with the ability to sense each other, as they do everything in their power to thwart destiny. Saran has no desire to be queen but is determined to overthrow her crazed father and salvage what is left of her country. Keleir is cursed with an Oruke, an interdimensional creature, at war with his body and soul. When Saran's magic is stolen, she must confront a life without the ability to manipulate time, struggle to see a rebellion finished, and keep Keleir from 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 an 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!"
