We Are Dying gods

From the ruins of Freya's temple, a new era of gods have risen. Carrying the power of those who came before them, they're tasked with doing what their predecessors could not — protecting the realm from the time beings who want to see it destroyed. It's an impossible task that leaves them with no room for failure.


But when their greatest enemy offers to become their ally, offering up Freya's darkest secrets in exchange for their trust, Brandi begins to question who it is they should be protecting the realm from — the time beings or the gods?


Weighed down with more questions than answers, Brandi chooses the path of greatest destruction. She'll lead the rebellion against the queendom, have Sarah bid for the throne, and escort Adam Bertanal to the gods herself. And anyone who defies her will learn what it means to face the true wrath of a god.
