Following The Root and The Tree, the final novel in the Wrath & Athenaeum, a compelling urban fantasy set in a San Francisco merged with a dimension filled with gods and magic.
The ravenous darkness threatening the twin worlds of Earth and Corpiliu is trapped... for now. But the alliance of two societies is fragile: new species clash with existing ones, monster-like Antes enslave humans, and humans hunt the “invaders” down.
Meanwhile, young warrior Erik has left everything behind to wander the world keeping order, haunted by visions of his lost love. But is it a trick like before ― or the real thing? And even as word of Erik’s deeds begins to spread, his own father, now fallen to the darkness, is spreading hatred and gathering legions.
Elsewhere, seer Tae and dream-visionary Melinda must learn how to defeat the forces arrayed against them, but they’ll need the help of gods driven beyond morality and sanity. And as Lil adapts to her new world, her magical powers grow beyond her control and threaten everything she’s working for.
When all of these powers collide, the world will break. And the one created afterward may not be what anyone expected...
