Book 1: Serpentine Coast
When dead have come for the living, which side do you join?
The Twelve skulls rule from deathly shadows. Who will bring light?
The land is under a dark spell, but can heroes emerge to challenge it?
A young female apprentice mage, a jaded soldier, and a woman priest must team up to root out a deathly conspiracy that threatens all who live on the Serpentine Coast.
Three unlikely companions from pastoral Montonbury, fortress-like Fastogan and the melting pot of Carywyre find themselves thrust into a battle against undead, and criminal underworld figures when they come to the aid of a magister.
The 12 Skulls are a criminal underworld who have joined forces with dark mage Mordephile. The skull's corrupting force has taken root in sleepy Montonbury and the magister is desperate to find out how. If it's not stopped, all of the Serpentine coast may fall to the skulls and Mordephile’s undead army.
So it is a young female apprentice mage, a jaded soldier, and a woman priest must team up to root out a deathly conspiracy that threatens all who live on the Serpentine Coast.
Their adventures range from the perils of the Sisters of the Dramorthian mountains to the bandits of the forests below. They encounter one of the 12 skulls and must survive kidnappings, black magic, traps and a burning house.
The journey they go on will change the course of their lives, and create an alliance to stand against the very forces of death itself.
