the Divine Talisman
Book Three of the Legend of Asahiel
Fate’s ultimate battle is waged first from within . . .
To protect his people from the demonic Illysp, Torin, king of Alson, made the ultimate sacrifice. Now, as his best friend and his former love seek to salvage the shattered lands beyond their borders, a treacherous assault costs them their most powerful weapon—the fabled Crimson Sword.
Hopelessly outmatched, Pentania’s citizens fight to flee their conquered homeland, or perish. Yet an even greater threat looms. For the Leviathan has been awakened, an unfathomable creature whose wrath could single-handedly destroy the entire world.
Hope—if any remains—lies in the efforts of a lone elf, a mad witch, and a fallen hero charged with unraveling a series of divine riddles. Yet, to do so, they must first find a way to break the very bonds of Illysp possession . . .
