The Edge of Chaos
Set in the Forgotten Realms universe, this fantasy tracks a death god priest and a young rogue with a traumatic past as together they try to prevent spellplague from escaping the plaguewrought lands.
“As I read through the story, I kept thinking, ‘Jak Koke, where have you been hiding your talent all this time?’ … The Edge of Chaos is exciting, entertaining, and full of interesting characters and dangerous denizens.”
— John Ottinger III, Grasping for the Wind
