Would you steal people's souls to keep yourself alive? It might prove difficult to hold onto your humanity.
Mertho the wizard is betrayed, transformed into a living dungeon core. He feels the dark magic within him and still holds onto his humanity. But he must steal the souls of those who die in his dungeon to survive.
Tehra the cut-throat elven thief has hit rock bottom when she stumbles upon the bizarre dungeon core. She fears his dark magic until finding it might be used for good, and her own purposes.
Can Mertho learn to wield his new power without becoming evil? Will Tehra decide that murder is just if intentions are righteous? When true horrors threaten to enter the mortal realm, these unwitting anti-heroes might actually be the lesser of evils.
This is a dark fantasy novel inspired by old-school RPGs. Expect violence, heroes with ambiguous morals, and a whole lot of sword-and-sorcery, dungeon building adventure!
Book two, The Demoness, is also out now!
