About This Book
Sorcerers in my Forging Divinity (and my other War of Broken Mirrors novels) tend to have roughly one to three Dominions they can work with, and each Dominion has an associated cost. A flame sorcerer can call on the Dominion of Flame to conjure fire, but at the cost of body heat. A water sorcerer can conjure water, but it dehydrates them.
Some magic types are more esoteric, and sorcerers also specialize in either calling (conjuring energy or matter from the Dominion) or shaping (manipulating existing matter/energy).
Some say that in the city of Orlyn, godhood is on sale to the highest bidder. Thousands flock to the city each year, hoping for a chance at immortality. Lydia Hastings is a knowledge sorcerer, capable of extracting information from anything she touches. When she travels to Orlyn to validate the claims of the local faith, she discovers a conspiracy that could lead to a war between the world's three greatest powers.
At the focal point is a prisoner who bears a striking resemblance to the long-missing leader of the pantheon she worships. Rescuing the prisoner would require risking her carefully cultivated cover - but his execution could mean the end of everything Lydia holds dear.
