The First Scars

Ivor K. Hill

"A most enjoyable fantasy adventure ... Dark but fun." (Jon Oliver, proof reader of Way of Kings and Rhythm of War.)

Before resurrection, there must be death.

The immortal Branded are needed once more; the Druidic Curse has returned to the Fatherland, and an entire city has fallen. The Great One calls for aid, and the devout and the desperate come in droves to sear their skin with His mark.

Niko Puchev, reeling from his banishment from the Old Magic Inquest, seeks to prove his detractors wrong, and can see no better path than to take the brand. But Tasha Zolanova volunteers with a single question on her lips; can the Cursed be saved?

To end the nightmare, Niko, Tasha and the other Branded must destroy the source. They will scour the bloody, hate-ridden streets of Ranitsa City, their every step stalked by the ravening Cursed. And they will die, over and over, only to wake once more, clinging to their swords and the tatters of their wills.

But the truth lurking behind the Curse will tear them from their souls.

Drenai Saga and Malazan meet Elden Ring and Bloodborne.
