Book Two in the series
Daughters of the Volcano
(revised and re-edited)
She is the instrument of the god’s vengeance—until she loses the power she cannot bear to live without.
A Girl of Dust & Death
Eighteen-year-old Maia, terrifying leader of the vicious temple maenads, has learned nothing but contempt for the weakness of her human body. She lives for the ritual that transforms her into maenad form, ready to administer the vengeance of the volcano god.
Killing a fugitive shifter is not just her duty, but her delight—until, against all odds, he captures her, trapping her in her worst nightmare. Her vulnerable, easily controlled human form.
Marked for destruction by his forbidden gifts, empath and shifter Philos fled the city years ago to become a warrior for persecuted people like him. Now he has the enemy at his mercy—a maenad desperate to regain her power. But when they touch, he finds his empathic power not so much a gift as a terrible danger. To his people, and his heart.
