“The day you stop fighting is the day you die”-Arophi
The series is targeted to a New Adult audience.
Main Conflict & Plot
When the goddess of life and death disappeared, Lathai fell into chaos. Prayers go unanswered, pestilence threatens to consume village after village, life after life. Political and religious strife are commonplace. Centuries-old temples are being razed to the ground, and those still following the goddess of life and death must decide between fleeing into the wilderness or being burned with their temples. Arophi, a young woman from Nephemir, is thrown into the throes of a revolution to preserve her home and save her family.
Lathai is a planet roughly the size of Earth consisting of several continents. In the narrative, Lathai is in an era similar to the Georgian Era (~1,700 AD). The overall mood is action-oriented and serious, but with a hopeful tone.
