Introduction to the Goddess’s Honor Series
What happens when the endless squabbling between the Seven Crowned Gods/Goddesses spills over into mortal politics, and human magicians must make choices that challenge the Gods/Goddesses on their own ground? The Goddess’s Honor series features two cousins, Katerin and Rekaré, as they wrestle with the choices that the Gods/Goddesses thrust upon them. Both women must decide which God or Goddess they truly follow—and how far they will go to restrain rogue divinities.
Goddess’s Honor works in chronological order:
Aireii sorceress Alicira, last magician of the house of Miteal, has escaped the clutches of Zauril, murderer of most of her family and usurper of the Leadership of Medvara. She struggles to remain free of his control, especially since her unborn daughter, Zauril’s child, may have inherited his magic instead of hers. Will she be able to find a safe refuge to rear her child free from Zauril’s influence and wreak her vengeance on him, or will the Gods interfere? Her only surviving sibling swears such a place is in Keldara. But will she be able to reach Keldara without losing all she holds dear?
