This time her phoenix energy has awoken the long dormant death deity, Nexanthon. She’s on the run, trying to stay one step ahead of the monster chasing her and find a weapon powerful enough to kill a death deity. Grave has been given one last task in exchange for his freedom from the Oracle—to protect and help the frustrating phoenix Athera. The only problem is that she’s made it clear she wants him, and he has a vow to keep. She’s a danger to him on every level, because if he gives in…he will be the one who kills her.
