Publisher's summary

When the gods go to war, who will stand against their divine fury?

In the thrilling conclusion to the A Fire Beneath the Skin trilogy, the enchanted kingdom of Helva faces a nightmarish future of endless bloodshed, and Rina Veraiin—a young warrior-duchess armed with mysterious, magical tattoos—must use her fantastic powers to save her home from eternal war.

As her far-flung friends scour Helva for additional tattoos to increase her formidable abilities, Rina reckons with an enigmatic death priest...the one whose contract grants her extraordinary magic but demands an awful price. When her debt comes due, can Rina make the ultimate sacrifice?

Deities clash and allies succumb as Rina strives to fulfill her obligation and confront her strange and shocking destiny. Becoming an ink mage taxed Rina's resources to their very limits; now she must become something else, something more, something awesome and terrible.

If she fails, her world will fall.

No surviving Heroes ?

The first book of this series really drew me in. I couldn't wait to read the next one and when I finally got to the last one, I couldn't put it down. Yeah, I noticed that a lot of the good guys were being killed off and the love affair was hopeless but surely there would be a couple of twists to bring it all back in for the heroes. Sadly, I was proved wrong. Why build up Rina Veraiin's character so much and still doom her ? She had no justice for her parents death, her love interest bailed in her without explanation, and she was only able to rule her own duchy for a few months. What was the point?

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
