Publisher's Summary

Niklaus du Plessis, master swordsman, hasn’t aged a day since being chosen by his goddess. A slave to her will, he moves from one cryptic mission to the next in the hope of pleasing her and perhaps ascending to become her equal. 

After centuries of dancing to his goddess’s tune, Niklaus meets the priestess Callis Drethna, and at her urging they embark on a quest together to find an ancient artifact. As they face mortal dangers, Niklaus’s affection for Callis grows, and he begins to wonder if there is more to life than unquestioned devotion.

Except a goddess’s chains are not so easily cast off, and Niklaus must make a choice between a mortal woman and one who is divine.

Whatever he decides, blood will be spilled. But will it be another innocent’s, or his own?

A really great short!

This short story was genuinely great! Following Niklaus (from previous stories and shorts), it questions his faith and what it means in real terms.
I can't say I can avoid spoilers, but this was a genuinely fantastic story that is worth a listen!
