When the Holy Order shakes off its long decline to again put witches and warlocks to slaughter, with full support from the government's new autocrat, a veritable reign of terror unfolds. Oppressed genetic aberrations called wizards and sorceresses are torn between aligning themselves with the new regime for survival, and finding it the catalyst for rebellion they've dreamed of for generations.
Things are bad enough when the Holy Order's high priest has a vision compelling him to revive long-dormant public fears of witchcraft and devils. When the ancient sect shakes off its millennium of decline to start burning and beheading people, with full support from the government's new self-proclaimed autocrat, a veritable reign of terror unfolds. The inevitable resistance isn't far behind.
Oppressed genetic aberrations historically known as wizards and sorceresses find themselves in the odd position of having a choice: worship the Maker and kill anyone who doesn't, or reject the Maker and die in a cleansing fire.
With their continent buckling under the weight of political and religious upheaval, the small core of a fledgling rebellion must guard against annihilation before many of the reluctant participants even fully understand why they fight.
"Ascendancy" is book one of The Maker's Eye trilogy.
