Long ago, the youngest of the gods fell into the clutches of an ambitious mortal, a vain usurper who almost destroyed the world. The Elderkin, the old gods, imprisoned the mortal in the heart of a mountain and took away the young god’s beauty, name, and tears. Then they fled the earth, leaving man godless. But they left a prophecy behind: that if the Nameless God’s birthright is returned to him before the mortal breaks free, the Elderkin will return. Now, the burden of this prophecy rests on the shoulders of a reluctant boy. As a Scribe for the Guardians, the group of men and women dedicated to restoring the gods, Sam has been mistreated, ordered about, and mind-scrambled. Now he has to fulfill the prophecy? The boy would much rather damn it than do it. But the choice may not be his to make.

Long ago, the youngest of the gods fell into the clutches of an ambitious mortal, a vain usurper who almost destroyed the world. The Elderkin, the old gods, imprisoned the mortal in the heart of a mountain and took away the young god’s beauty, name, and tears. Then they fled the earth, leaving man godless. But they left a prophecy behind: that if the Nameless God’s birthright is returned to him before the mortal breaks free, the Elderkin will return.

Now, the burden of this prophecy rests on the shoulders of a reluctant boy. As a Scribe for the Guardians, the group of men and women dedicated to restoring the gods, Sam has been mistreated, ordered about, and mind-scrambled. Now he has to fulfill the prophecy? The boy would much rather damn it than do it. But the choice may not be his to make.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Blew my preconceived notions about fantasy right out of the water!…This masterful storyteller gives us nonstop action, unequaled suspense, and characters you can’t help loving—or hating…The surprise ending will leave you panting for more…destined to be a classic in the same class as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.” S. Joan Popek
