City of the Gods: Guardian was officially released May 9, 2013!

Are you ready for 440 more pages of adventure with D’Molay and the gods of the realms? We are so excited that this second novel in the series is ready for you! Readers will discover how D’Molay and Mazu track down Scylla and break the witch Circe’s curse. But that’s just one intriguing mystery that is brought to light. What about those strange, blood-filled urns? Will Set continue to avoid answering for his part in the war? And is D’Molay going mad?
