Blood Wars: Rise of the Serpent

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

The serpent is one of the oldest and most widespread Gods of Pandora, a planet of heavily divided territories and Zodiac pantheons. From the Stovitus Empire to The Culling Coast, snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to humankind and represent dual expression of good and evil. They are either feared or loved. In the center of the Dormant Expanse resides the most noble house of the Kingdom of Khozar. House Dominika. A bloodline of wizards ending in the birth of Lady Gwyneth and Lord Balthasar's first child, a stillborn named Nicoletta. The resurrected child would become the first ever patron of the serpent. Now a warlock with powers the world has never seen. What will her venture into adulthood bring?

Prologue

Whether it be by blood, by spirit, by choice—or not—we live to serve. We all are bound to a force greater than ourselves—even when we can not see it—it is always there. Watching. Waiting. Learning. Even those without magic—without the belief in pantheons—all live to serve that which they lack and oppose.

There is no escaping the power that shapes worlds and influences life—as well as death.

It fit perfectly with the absence of color on the surrounding four walls, ceiling and floor. Everything was black, except for the porcelain dollNicoletta Dominika. There was no light to reflect and yet the room was perfectly lit. Everything inside was visible. The chair she was currently sitting in was obsidian along with the matching pedestal end table directly in front of the warlock. Her eyes were fixated on the tall glass goblet that was placed precisely in the middle of the table and was filled to the brim with something sinister. She knew what she had to do. Her fingers gripped the edge of her chest plate in a fidgeting action before she reached out for what was assuredly her demise.

Consume.
