“I won’t ask you to be anything other than what you are. And you must not ask that of me.”Avestine (Darklaw)
Excerpt | In the Shadows of Gods
Avestine was sahr. She was the last living child of the Architect, the man who had carved the Empire of Darklaw from the world like a mad butcher and made monsters of his own children. She would reconcile every brutality and sadistic pleasure he had inflicted upon her by assuring no one ever controlled her destiny again. Lust for power had consumed her soul long before Arujan, the god of Kings, made her his avatar.
AVESTINE rose to power through ruthless strategies in war and skill in battle, and when her loyalty was tested, she did not flinch. At her father’s command, she executed her mother and was rewarded with command of her first legion. She became Emissary of the gods upon the death of the Architect. Once Warmaster and heir to the empire of Darklaw, she was hunted by her insane brother who had murdered their legendary father.
