Now presented together in one printed volume, the first three novellas of the Descent Into Darkness dark fantasy series will take you through the beginning of Ba'tvian Delthanurk's bloody journey.
Against all odds, Ba'tvian Delthanurk managed to leave his serf family behind, along with their derision for his gifts, his ambitions. Now he is determined not to fall back into the dirt of his inferior origins. Yet his aspirations lead him down a darker path than his teachers intended.
A mage-in-training intended for the priesthood, the elven lady Nerisse se li Astorae has come to the Trinity to finish her magical education. There, she becomes the pupil of blood mage Ba'tvian's former mentor. Yet while the Mancers continue their hunt for the renegade, Ba'tvian will set in motion his plans for vengeance...and a young elven mage will be irrevocably changed.
Two years have passed since Ba'tvian took his revenge. No longer alone, still hunted by the Mancers, he ventures into the northern wilderness during the dead of winter. There, Ba'tvian will sow the seeds for a dark future with blood.
