Slake your craving for gothic fantasy romance and enter the world of Strange Magics. Treachery in the Tithe threatens the ancient magical contract keeping the restless dead at bay, and it's up to Niamne to uphold the Barony's end of the bargain with the Boneman, even at the risk of her own vows, to keep the restless dead from invading the world of the living. More
The Boneman will have his due…
When Niamne is tricked into delivering the yearly Tithe to the Dread Lord, she never expects to be part of the sacrifice. The last necromancer is a creature of terrifying legend, but the reality is more compelling than frightening, and very much a man.
Orphios finds better company with the dead than the living. One week of the year he takes the Tithe of goods and treasure and...other things...that keep the dead from rising from their rest. A sharp-tongued acolyte with a holy blessing that clashes with his magic was not part of the deal.
When the dead reject the Tithe, the ancient magical contract fractures. Niamne must choose--fulfill the contract and bring down the curse of her goddess on Orphios, or break it and unleash the restless dead on the world of the living.
Before the week is up, Orphios and Niamne must outmaneuver the treachery of town leaders and outwit the rules of the gods before the dead rise up and take matters into their own hands.
Slake your craving for gothic fantasy romance and enter the world of Strange Magics. Magic is capricious when hearts get involved.
