Forsaken

by Richard Lee Byers
Release date: 2002
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

The Divine War, the great conflict between gods and titans, shattered the world of Scarn and transformed it into the Scarred Lands. It also claimed many casualties, including the god of the elves of Termana. With his death, the elves lost their immortality, their purpose and their future. They became forsaken. Vladawen, the forgotten god's high priest, has not given up hope, however. He struggles to return his people to greatness in the only way he knows how: by bringing their god back from the dead.

But resurrection is a tricky business, full of pain and sacrifice. To gain worshipers, Vladawen manages to start a religious war in the land of Darakeene and gains the dubious patronage of Belsameth, Goddess of Lies and Murder. Now, Vladawen's only chance to secure his fledgling religion is to find the lost relics of his god-and forsake those he loves the most.
