Thousands of years ago, seven ancient demons of incredible power were sealed away within seven magical artifacts. The demon chains were forged to contain their evil powers, but even the greatest of magic couldn’t harness them fully. In time, the chains passed into legend and were forgotten by most.
In the ruins of Dar’Kasha, Jalissa hunts for lost treasures. She’s a pilferer, a scavenger, wandering the world in search of artifacts to sell. When she uncovers a hidden chamber, the treasure she finds within is one that will exact a terrible price on her, instead.
Within this forgotten room, in the dusty fingers of a desiccated skeleton, is a gem-laden chain that glows with its own magical light. The thing seems to sing to her, to call to her, urging her to bear it from the darkness. What Jalissa doesn’t realize, is that she’s just carried forth an ancient evil. And it’s one that’s begun to consume her soul from the moment she touched it.
Now, she’s in a race against time, fighting the demon’s compulsions and her own temptation. She finds herself in the company of a less-than-competent mage, with the demon’s power growing as it uses her body to feed. Before it can consume her, she’ll need to find a way to free herself from its vile hold or perish in the attempt.Meet the Author
