"Gleason tells the tale in a rousing fashion... A crackling, satisfying yarn." -- Kirkus Reviews
Vorik wasn't supposed to be clan leader. That was a position meant for his brother, and their father before them. But nothing had prepared them to face down the tyrant responsible for so much loss. Vorik thought the worst was behind them. He was wrong.
When a devastating quake forces them to relocate, sending them right into the lands of unstoppable foes intent on killing them all, the warriors must make battle preparations while solving the mystery of an enemy no one knows how to defeat. If they don't figure out a solution, they'll fall like so many others.
Despite impossible odds, Vorik must find a way to defeat these new enemies. He might not have been prepared to lead, but he won't betray the memories of those who led the Bullik-Braunzin Clan before him by failing them. Everyone who understands the danger they're facing are urging him to abandon their home and flee.
Except Vorik has never been one to run from a fight, so why start now?

Hades was the eldest male and the fourth child of Kronos, the Titan King of Mount Othrys, and his sister-wife Rhea, born after his sisters Hestia, Demeter, and Hera. Since he was their firstborn son, Rhea had hoped that Hades would not get swallowed, since she believed that Kronos would enjoy raising a son and heir. However, since Hades was a god (a member of a more beautiful and powerful race of immortals than the Titans), Kronos, fearing that Hades would one day overpower him, quickly proceeded to swallow him whole as well. Hades, thus, spent his childhood undigested in his father's stomach along with his sisters, and younger brother Poseidon, who was swallowed shortly thereafter. As a result, Kronos became known as "King Cannibal." Rhea pleaded with Kronos to spare their children but with no success, since even Kronos' great love for Rhea was not enough to overpower his selfish and evil nature. However, Rhea soon gave birth to her final child, Zeus, whom she secretly raised on Crete, far away from Mount Othrys.
