Smoke and Rain (Reforged 1; Paperback)
To save their world she must destroy her own
“I expected a hero to save us all. Turns out, I was thinking of the wrong part of the story. In the beginning, we aren't saved. There are only fragments and grief. The pieces must be gathered and flames kindled before I'm reforged. I don't know what shape I will take. Those pieces might become a hero...
...or a monster.”
A mad king’s genocide destroyed Alea's home and left her sanity in tatters. Caught in the crossfire between the gods and their creators, Alea realizes the darkness inside her is the only thing that can end the bloodshed. Horrified by the blood on his hands, bastard lieutenant Brentemir Barrackborn must choose between the gods he worships and newfound family if he has any hope of redemption—or surviving the war.
What happens when heroes are as broken as the world they must reforge?
