The Scythe and the Seer, Book 3 of the Enchanter's Cycle

Blurb

As a nation recovers from the loss of its ruler, its many heroes scatter to the far winds. The Skraul assault on Teikoku Tanbetsu has seemingly found its end with the death of Byo'Ku, the Matriarch of Pain. Where then, are the vampyre armies? Where is the final Matriarch? Where are the R'yzthaek and the Dread Hammer himself? The race is on to uncover the final stages of Dur'Artoth's schemes, for Surthath is no longer present to offer guidance and the Scythe of Argosaxx; a weapon that can slay the gods themselves, is still unaccounted for. Worlds will quake, the realms of mortals and immortals alike will fall to the flames, and fate itself may be re-written to serve the Dread Hammer's dark dream. Is this a new beginning, or the beginning of the end?

Prelude

I will speak now of the Prophecy of the Circle…

A circle of five hearts, five souls, that when brought together, will either save or damn all the worlds within and beyond the Veil.

The First is and yet is not of my blood. She who is mortal, yet she who is not. I know now that this speaks of Elurra; she is the First, born of my blood, and ascended to my sphere in Moonshadow, yet who may cross freely into the Veil, born of it as a mortal.

The Second is the creator, the giver of life to the lifeless, yet who bears only a false life herself. The Second will be born in a great age of strife, and will decide the ultimate fate of Aurora, the human world.

The Third is the destroyer and the counterpart to the Second. He will be the healer who brings destruction, the innocent monster whose path will be forged in fire, blood, and darkness.

The Fourth I know well, yet know not, a life given for a life claimed, the restoration of the natural order of life and death. The Fourth will be the key, who will prime the circle.

The Fifth is the trickster of half-blood, whose heart contains the deepest shadows. It is the Fifth who will complete the circle, and upon their power will hinge either the success or failure of the prophecy, and thus, the fate of all things.
