The people worship the Thirteen Goddesses who took their power from the almighty Fane before destroying him. Called the Dark and Beautiful One, Thalil, a son of these deities receives his power from his so called children, the Order of the Crimson Scythe, assassins living in the shadows of the people.
It is forbidden to leave the Order of the Crimson Scythe. One such killer however has chosen a different path. Sasha has joined with Yarrow L’Estrella and Duncan Purifoy to fight under the flag of their sovereign Prince Garth. Battles of man and of the heart unite these men. They fight for the future of their people, not their deities. They will also need to battle to keep Sasha alive as he is a marked man for leaving the order. Through life and death obstacles the three stand as one.
Intricate and detailed the complex world of man and the Almighty take their stand in Iron and Ether, the third book in the Blessed Epoch series. Human relationships are as complicated as the beings they worship in this fantastical tale. Blood, sweat, and drama balance against magical, mystical happenings that never end. One certainty is that this series should be read in order otherwise it’s difficult to follow. The characters have intense lives with obstacles to overcome in a multi-layered plotline. Iron and Ether will appeal to those who love a richly detailed fantasy romance. Just remember to read in proper sequence.
