TO BE WOVEN BY THE FATES IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.
When the skies split and the veil between Earth’s realm and the Godly realms is lifted, the prophecy awakens in the form of eighteen-year-old Shivalri Grimsbane, she with the blood of all three realms.
In her lifetime, Shivalri never thought magic to be more than a fairy tale. Though raised unaware of her witchhood, she quickly learns that her lineage is full of enchantment. Through a string of destiny, her magic has come to fruition, unruly and unknown. Designed with the sole purpose of fulfilling an ancient legend, Shivalri’s duty is clear: repair the veil and keep the Gates from opening and unleashing Heaven and Hell unto Earth. At the spill of her blood, she is a divine key under the guise of a mortal.
When disaster strikes and plans go awry, a window opens at the Gates of the Under Realm for Pyre Malum, Daimon of the Dead. With the blood of the new Triple Goddess at his fingertips, Pyre Malum’s chance for revenge is sweeter than ever. Cruel, ruthless, and amassed with wrath, he takes her prisoner in the Under Realm in hopes of breaking her into submission.
The young witch must work to get back to Earth, at any cost, before she is forced to doom the world at the hands of her malevolent captor. As they learn to work together, one for vengeance, one for secret escape, Shivalri discovers that the world is not all as it seems. As her feelings toward the exiled God turn from resentment to a fiery mess of confusion, her virtue and damnation clash to rule her heart.
WHEN THE FATES STRING A DESTINY, THEY LEAVE NO STRING UNRAVELED.
WILL HER CORDS LIGHT THE WAY?

"Scichilone’s grand scope, strong characterization, inventive creatures (especially the nightmarish steed Nihility), memorably fantastical set pieces, and understanding of the heart will give fans of dark fantasy much to enjoy..." —BookLife Reviews in Publishers Weekly
AWAKENING IN A DAZE with the inscrutable God of Nightmares standing above her, Shivalri demands to know what happened after her monstrous fall. Ombrose relinquishes naught, and the goddess is left to question as they travel through the Forest of Lost Souls.
After Ombrose discloses his capture of Shivalri to his godly line, the Orsimm family grows weary. No one defies the ruler of the Under Realm—except perhaps Shivalri herself. When Pyre Malum ventures to retrieve her, the pair will uncover how significantly she becomes his only exception. Truth, lies, and magic line their path to discovering their ties.
SATYRA KNOWS THE PROPHECY WELL: Shivalri must repair the veil and keep the physical Gates from opening and unleashing pandemonium unto Earth. But how could she when she is missing?
Through a see-walk, Satyra witnesses Shivalri slumped over and blood-soaked, surrounded by the High Council and a diabolic creature. In this dream state, Satyra can do nothing to stop the winged fiend from taking Shivalri through a flaming portal. A portal to where? Hell? When she relays this vision to her grandmother and cousin Raidan, they hatch a plan to save Shivalri—with an unforeseen rebel at their side.
In a twist of fate, enemies become allies, family fights for freedom, and the new triple goddess embarks on a journey to repair the veil between realms.
